Volunteers Sought to Host International Students for a Meal
The English Language Institute (ELI) is seeking volunteers to invite international students to share a meal in their homes.
The students, hosted by University College, are Fulbright scholars from Asia, Africa, Central America, South America and Eastern Europe who will attend the English for Graduate Studies program at the ELI. They will be in Syracuse for four weeks from July 15 to Aug. 9 and will then join graduate, Ph.D. or research programs at universities throughout the U.S.
These students have few opportunities to interact with Americans in a relaxed setting, but they have intriguing stories to tell and a lively curiosity about Syracuse and the local culture. We would ask that in addition to serving the meal, you could provide transportation to and from your home and campus.
If you are interested in participating, please contact Jackie Monsour at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315.443.2390.
