One Time Experiences
No orientations required
Dinner/Lunch in an American Home
During each new student orientation either Dinner in An American Home (Fall) or Lunch in an American Home (Spring) is provided to allow new international students and scholars to spend a few hours in an American home for a personal welcome to Arkansas. We ask that volunteers that would like to host live within 20 minutes of the U of A campus. Students will sign-up using a link sent to their uark email.
Thanksgiving Dinner in an American Home
This is one of our signature one-time programs done jointly with Spring International Language Center. Each year, we recruit local families who are willing to share their holiday dinner with a few international students and scholars. Since Thanksgiving is an important part of American culture, it is a great opportunity for our international students, scholars, and their families to celebrate and experience this traditional American Holiday.
