International Student and Scholar Services is planning its next Experience American Tastes (EAT!) event for Jan. 24.
The EAT! program provides international students and scholars with a chance to enjoy American food and culture with a local family. Vanderbilt staff, faculty and community members volunteer to host a dinner and invite the international students and scholars to join them for an evening.
ISSS matches host families with students and scholars one to two weeks before the scheduled dinner. The hosts then contact the international participants a few days before the date to notify them of the time and to arrange transportation and other details. Students and scholars attend in groups of two to four.
This month, there are several interested students and scholars but only a small handful of hosts. To participate as a host family, sign up here.
If you are interested in serving as a host family but cannot participate this month, future EAT! dates are Feb. 21 and March 27.
