English Language Institute Seeking Volunteers to Host Students
The English Language Institute (http://eli.syr.edu) is seeking volunteers to invite international students to share a meal in their homes. The students, hosted by University College, are studying at Syracuse University now through fall 2018. The students have 21 hours of English instruction a week as they prepare for full-time study at the University. During the fall and spring semester, most are aspiring undergraduates; during the summer, the majority are graduate students.
These students have few opportunities to interact with Americans, but they have intriguing stories to tell and a lively curiosity about Syracuse and the local culture. Please help make them feel welcome in the community. If you are interested in participating, please contact Jackie Monsour, coordinator, ELI Admissions and Students Services, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315.443.2390.
