Short-Term Homestay

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.
