Holiday Host Program: International Student Application

Thank you for considering participation in the ONU Holiday Host program! Our goal is to connect you with area families in order to provide you an opportunity to experience a typical American holiday with an American family. Not only do we want you to learn more about American customs and traditions, but families would love for you to share some of your culture with them!

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 November 19th to Sunday November 27th for Thanksgiving break and Saturday, December 17th to Sunday, January 15th for Winter Break.  You do not have to stay with your Host family for the entire duration of break!  

Applications are open for the 2016 year!

If you have any questions, please visit the International Student FAQs page, and feel free to email, or call the International Services Coordinator at (419) 772-1966
