Looking for a cross-cultural experience? Enjoy sharing a meal with people?

Graduate Division’s “Taste of America” program returns this fall connecting international students with local families over dinner. The program expands the educational experience beyond the campus and into the local community.

Your participation in “Taste of America” will expose your family to diverse cultures and interesting conversations. A dinner can be hosted on one night during the following weeks based on your availability:

• November 7 – November 11 (Veteran’s Day holiday is on Friday, November 11)
• November 14 – November 18
• November 21 – November 25 (Thanksgiving Holiday week)
• November 28 – December 2

If you are interested in hosting a group (2-5 students) for a casual dinner, please complete an online application by Friday, October 14:

Thank you for your consideration and for extending the university experience into your home.
