You can find out a little bit about the international students who are currently attending FVL on Saturday, November 16 from 4:30 to 6:30 PM at their Culture and Cuisine event. You will be able to sample foods from about a dozen countries around the world in the FVL commons. After you’re done doing that, you can waddle over to the FVL auditorium for a special presentation.
In this presentation, you will hear several international students talking about their homelands and their experiences attending school at FVL.
There is also a special display of honor given to the host families who are taking care of these special students throughout the year. It might even inspire you to get involved in this program in the future.
