Lawrence Friendship Family Program

This community-based program matches participating international students with local families and individuals. This is not a live-in program, but rather an opportunity for developing friendships and promoting cross-cultural understanding through occasional meals and organized social activities. Special events such as picnics, game nights, "pot luck" dinners, ice cream socials and an annual square dance are all a part of the calendar. Matches are made at the beginning of each fall and spring semester.

Note : This program requires an application form (available in the ISS Office)
