Multicultural & International Students

Denison University sponsors a non-residential Host Family Program that brings together international students with local families. Host families help new international students adjust to their new cultural surroundings. They also provide entrée into the local community and off campus life. In turn, local families are able to expand their own horizons through friendship with a student from another country. Many relationships between host families and international students last long after the student has graduated from Denison.
