Host Families for International Students Still Needed

Our international class is growing and we are excited to welcome them to our campus in August. Most international students do not arrive at JCU with family members, so they greatly appreciate the help of our JCU community, especially their host families. We have five generous JCU employees who will become host families this fall, but we still need more!

As a host family for our international students, the required time commitment is very little. New international students will arrive on August 16 and 17. We ask that host families, at minimum, provide transportation to shopping so that students can buy necessary items and help them to set up their dorm rooms by August 18. After that, your level of commitment and engagement with your international student is whatever you and they are interested in.
