Host friends sought for international students

The Center for International Education at UW-Eau Claire invites Chippewa Valley community members to become host friends for international students. Host friends provide a three- to four-day home stay for international students before they move into their residence halls.

Host friends are accepted on a rolling basis and are given the choice as to whether or not they can accommodate new international students when they arrive. New international students arrive for both fall and spring semesters. Host friends currently are needed for the spring 2015 semester; home stay dates are Jan. 17-21.

To apply, please follow this link:
