Thank you, FIUTS Hosts!

On September 26, FIUTS had the distinct pleasure of honoring all the community members who opened their homes and hearts to incoming international students through the Homestay Program. Speeches from Ricardo Ibarra, President of the Board of Trustees, Era Schrepfer, Executive Director, and Samantha Novak, Manager of Community Programs, highlighted the lifelong memories created through hosting. FIUTS is proud to celebrate all friendship connections, students, and hosts who took part in the Program, whether they first started 30 years ago or are just beginning. Thank you for all that you do!
