An annual Kansas University program helping international students experience the Thanksgiving tradition is looking for host families.
The Betty Grimwood Thanksgiving Homestay Program, now in its 55th year, allows participating families to host one or more students for either Thanksgiving Day only or the entire break, Nov. 25-29.
“It’s a great opportunity to show international students American culture and tradition,” said Ece Gurler, program coordinator.
So far, 25 students and nine families have registered to participate, but the program is seeking more.
Interested families can register with the KU International Student and Scholar Services at 864-3617 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for registration is Wednesday.
