Host International Students for Thanksgiving
Thursday, November 23 | The University of Charleston has international students who are staying in the dorms during holidays. Most have no access to meals (as the kitchen is closed all week at Thanksgiving). You’re invited to host 2-5 students for Thanksgiving Day dinner. This gives the students an opportunity to get off campus, to experience an American Thanksgiving, and to have a good, hot meal. Students will need to be picked up at UC and taken back sometime after dinner. If you would like to host students this Thanksgiving, please let us know.
