Last week on February 12, 2015, we had another successful friendship families reception in which many new students met their families for the first time. It was an exciting night filled with great food, culturally unique performances, and lots of wonderful conversation.
Our friendship families program is a great way for students to get connected with community members and for local families to get to know about a different culture. Our students and families meet at least once a month to hang out, enjoy a meal, or participate in one of the many activities the Palouse has to offer.
We still have several students who have not been matched with a family but eagerly want one. If you are interested in being a friendship family, contact Elitza Kotzeva at Elitzak@uidaho.edu.
