The Rinker Center for International Programs is looking for community members to serve as a host families for international students. The Friendship Family Program matches international students with local families and residents in and around Muncie. The goal of the program is to provide international students with additional support while in the United States and an opportunity to learn more about American culture outside of the university environment. Families and students are asked to commit to doing one activity a month together. Students do not live with the families, nor are families responsible for any financial assistance.
