Buffalo State College is seeking host families to share holidays, occasional meals and leisure activities with students from other countries.
Jean Gounard, director of the International Student Affairs Office, said host families help introduce students to American customs by spending time with them informally. The students do not live with their host families.
"Most often they help with advice on everyday living, such as using public transportation to get around the city and where to buy clothing and other necessities," Gounard says. "The host families make the students feel at home, ease their transition to life in another country and help give them a sense of belonging."
