A dinner is set for next month for community members interested in connecting with University of Idaho international students through the International Programs Office’s Friendship Family initiative.
The program matches international students with families to build relationships and share cultures, according to the UI website.
The initial commitment is for one semester, but many students and families choose to remain in contact and maintain their relationships throughout the students’ time at the university, and even beyond, according to the website description. Friendship Families include university faculty members, administrators and staff members, as well as residents of Moscow and nearby towns.
Registration for the dinner, from 5-7 p.m. June 7 at the 1912 Center, is at bit.ly/UIFriendshipProgram.
