Open Your Home to an IUPUI International Student
IUPUI Global Jags Connect (previously known as the International Host Program) is a bridge between IUPUI international students and IUPUI community members living in the Indianapolis area. We match community connections (alumni, faculty, community members, and staff) with current international students. Community Connections invite students to community events, such as sporting events, festivals, holidays, or invite students to their homes for a meal at least once per month. Global Jags Connect is an excellent way for the IUPUI community to learn more about international cultures.
For international students, it is a way to gain a richer understanding of American life and have fun, too! This is not a homestay. Students in Global Jags Connect do not live with their Community Connections. Rather, the alumni, faculty, staff, and community members serving as community connections provide friendship and support for international students, and help introduce students to American life. The 2018 Sign-Up Deadline is Monday, September 10.
