Study Abroad, Experiential Education Program in South Asia

Home Stay

Once the program begins, students move in with a home stay family. These households come from different socioeconomic and religious backgrounds. There is at least one family member who is conversant in English. While in the cities many families have acquired telephones and similar modern conveniences, others, especially in rural areas, do not have these luxuries. In the application process, students give general preferences as to the type of family with whom they would like to live. It is common for students to create relationships with their host families that last a lifetime making home stay one of the most popular aspects of our programs.
