This December, UNB Fredericton faculty and staff are invited to be a part of the UNB International Student Advisor’s Office's (ISAO) Holiday Host program!  This program - a commitment of only an hour or two - provides international students who can't return to their home country during the holidays (roughly December 23rd to January 2nd) an opportunity to connect with a local UNB host or host family for an activity* during that time period. International students who are in Fredericton over the winter break can sometimes feel quite lonely when campus is quiet because a lot of students have returned home for the holidays.

If you'd like to spend a short part of your holidays learning about another culture and gaining an understanding of the international student experience, please send an expression of interest by email to ISAO Advisor Hillary Nguyen at hillary.nguyen@unb.ca before Friday, Dec. 13. You may be matched with two to three students to do the activity together.

*past activities have included tree-trimming and holiday decorating, snowman-building, sledding, skating, walks in the snow, visits to the market, traditional dinners and more.
