Become a CultureLink friendship family

The Office of International Student Services (OISS) at the University of St. Thomas invites members of the St. Thomas community to join the CultureLink Friendship Family Program. This program connects new international students with American families. Only a minimum time commitment is needed.

The program promotes cultural exchange within the St. Thomas community by helping international students adjust to life in the United States. As a friendship family, you will have a unique opportunity to learn about various countries, world cultures and traditions during your free time.

If you are interested in the program and would like to get more information, please attend the Friendship Family Information Session from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 22, in Room 152, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Light snacks and refreshments will be included.

During the information session, you will see the program presentation and meet current participants of the Friendship Family Program, who will tell you about their successful experience.

For more information and to apply, e-mail the Office of International Student Services or call (651) 962-6650. You also may apply online at the program Web site.

The application deadline for fall 2008 is Friday, May 30.
