Hostfamily -- International Family & Friends Program


About Hostfamily
English (USA)

Incoming international students are matched with a Hampshire staff or faculty member, who can provide an additional source of support away from home. The International Friends & Family Program (IFFP)is an opportunity for cultural exchange and an additional source of support and information about Hampshire, the Five College system, and living in the United States. Often students and their host families build friendships that extend beyond the college years. Organized by the Multicultural & International Student Services office.
