Are you a Family in or near Oxford wanting to meet people from around the world and help them to adapt to life in the U.S.? If so, complete and submit this sign-up to become an International Neighbor.

International Neighbors are expected to meet at least once a month over the duration of the semester, but are encouraged to meet more often if possible for both sides. What is done during each meeting is up to the pair to decide, but ideas include the American family inviting their partner for a meal, going to see a movie, or going fishing.
Families will be provided with a short training and resources to help them accomplish the goals of their exchange student partner. In other words, you will be given the tools you need to have a great experience with this flexible yet highly impactful opportunity.
The information provided through this application will help us in doing pairings. When possible, we try to pair people with similar interests, majors, etc., but it is not guaranteed.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about the application or program in general, please contact Kelly Slater at (228) 623-7029 or [email protected]
