The Graduate School is looking for volunteer hosts for its House-to-House program, which provides international students and visiting scholars with a taste of Auburn’s warm Southern hospitality. Volunteers must be willing to team up with a friend to host 6-8 international students in their home or apartment. Only three things are needed: a place (house or apartment), some food and a warm, friendly attitude. You pick the date and time, and the Graduate School will help with the rest. Research has shown that 75-80 percent of international students nationwide never enter an American’s home during their stay in the United States. The House-to-House program is intended to combat that statistic. If interested, contact Len Vining at vininlj@auburn.edu or 524-3823 or his assistant Cody Marschalk at marscca@auburn.edu or 233-4425 for more information.
