International Programs


Host Families

The Summer / Winter in Maryland Program at Towson University includes a weekend homestay that pairs international student participants with local area American families.

The homestay represents a significant opportunity for cross-cultural sharing outside the classroom, and is an invaluable experience for both the students and their gracious hosts.  Host families are able to learn about foreign cultures and world languages, while at the same time teach and share their American culture and heritage. In addition to learning, sharing, and enjoying time together, lifelong friendships often emerge. The experience is frequently considered one of the highlights of the program.
