Information for students on the FIUTS homestay program.

 

KimC

The FIUTS Welcome Week Homestay Program is a cross-cultural friendship experience between an international student and an American host. As part of this program, new international students and scholars who have just arrived in Seattle spend 7-10 days in the home of a volunteer host. Your host family will help you to settle in and learn more about Seattle during your first few days in the US. This program is primarily for students who have never studied or lived in the US, and who want to stay in someone's home for their first week in Seattle.
