Holiday Host Program: Host Family Application

Thank you for considering participation in the ONU Holiday Host program! For our international students this may be the only chance the students have to interact with an American family and they are very excited for the potential opportunity. Not only will they learn more about American customs and traditions, but they would love to share some of their culture with you!  For our Dimension Award Scholars this can be a needed respite from classes and campus life.

We will match students with host families on a first-come first-served basis, according to the information you provide in your application. Every effort will be made to satisfy as many requests as possible. Dates and times are flexible, in relation to family and student preferences and means of transportation. The program lasts from Saturday, Nov. 18th - Sunday, Nov. 26th for Thanksgiving and Saturday Dec. 16th - Sunday Jan. 14th for Winter Break so any arrangements can be made within that time frame. Families do not have to host for the entire duration of respective breaks.

Applications are now open for the 2017 Winter Break season!
