International Students Inc. (ISI) is a national Christian service organization made up of trained, culturally-sensitive, American friends, eager for cultural exchange. International students of all religions & beliefs are welcome to participate. As Christians we follow what the Bible says: "Remember to welcome strangers in your homes."
Home Groups meet in an American home weekly for ethnic and American food, meeting new friends, Englsh conversation, fun games, and Bible discussion for those who are interested. We typically meet on a Friday or Saturday night.
Home Groups offer International students the opportunity to experience American culture, develop friendships, practice English, and interact with Americans and students from around the world in a friendly and welcoming environment. We're a culturally diverse group with students from different religions backgrounds, countries and degree levels. We would love to have you join us as we learn and grow together.
Home Group Format: We generally meet for a meal, then have some fun and games or discussion time. Then we break into groups. One group consists of those that are interested in English discussion on relevant cultural topics. The other group consists of those that are intersted in exploring the Bible in a discussion format. Afterwards we might have dessert and more games. Transportation is provided. The groups generally meet on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night. Sign up for a group below and the leader will contact you about the details and transportation.
