Host Family Program Student Application

The Host Family program matches an international student with a host family in the Northfield community. The program provides the opportunity for international students to experience American culture through friendship with an American family. It is our hope that the relationship that develops between students and their host family will help expand cultural awareness and create lifelong global friendships.

We currently are accepting applications from freshmen, sophomore and junior international students who would like to be matched with a host family.

Once matched students' responsibilities are:

  • share your country and culture, and most importantly, yourself!
  • communicate with your family on a regular basis
  • accept invitations from the host family whenever possible and be courteous to contact host family if you can not attend a scheduled event
