Good evening all. This is a PSA from one of our neighbors:
This June 15, a new group of 49 Colombian students will arrive at Purdue for 6 months of study. Local families and singles are being sought to host one or more students in their homes. Past host families have found the commitment to be very rewarding. One IFP family said having their Colombian student was one of the best things they had done that year! Families whose children studied Spanish in school really enjoyed the educational and social enrichment brought to them by having a native speaker in their home. The Colombian students without exception said that their experience with their friendship partner/family was THE HIGHLIGHT of their time here.
If you or a friend or neighbor are interested in learning more about being matched with a Colombian student, please promptly contact Beth Tucker, Coordinator of International Friendship Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
