FFIS volunteers host newly arrived UO international students at the beginning of fall,
winter, and spring terms before they move into permanent housing. This program provides international students with a highly positive first impression of American hospitality and frequently leads to lasting friendships. It is a short-term program, but volunteers usually build lifelong friendships and connections.

Haozhe is very smart, motivated, and wants to be a world citizen. He has been wonderful to have in our lives, and our relationship with him will continue for the next three years.
