Be a Host for Host-A-Boiler 2023

Are you a community resident or Purdue faculty or staff member who enjoys celebrating the holidays and spreading cheer to others? Consider inviting Purdue international students to join your holiday celebration this year. Hosting students for a meal or activity is a great way to welcome a student into our community and make them feel at home when they are far from their family and friends.

 Hosting for Host-a-Boiler involves:

  • Offering a one-time get together for a cultural activity or meal over holiday breaks for international students staying in the Lafayette area over their school breaks.
  • The one-time meet up would preferably be in a local family/individual’s home, but you the host will extend the invitation and meet up details to your matched student(s).

You are in for a treat! Thank you for your generosity this holiday season!
