Host Family Program

Four International StudentsHeidelberg’s international flavor reaches into the Tiffin Community as well through the Host Family Program, which matches local families with international students in a cultural exchange. The program is designed as an outreach to the students, helping them to experience American life beyond the university setting. Most of the meetings center on routine family-type activities. We will do our best to place each interested student with a family. The International Affairs & Studies Office at Heidelberg University offers several activities for the students and their families throughout the year.
