International students and scholars are eager to learn more about our culture, to experience the warmth of a home, and to make American friends. Thanksgiving Day provides a unique opportunity to show hospitality and friendship. If you would be interested in sharing this special American holiday with a VCU international student or scholar, please contact Pam Haney (pohaney@vcu.edu ) by November 12 or call 828-8309. A Thanksgiving volunteer form can also be found under Holiday Visit at http://www.global.vcu.edu/students/connections/connected/ .

Update: If you would like to host an international student, but do not want to prepare Thanksgiving Dinner, you are welcome and encouraged to bring your student to the Wibberlys' for Thanksgiving Dinner. Their place is open to anyone who would like to join them. They will begin at 3 PM on Thanksgiving Day.  Please RSVP to katwibb@yahoo.com on/before Friday, 11/21.
