Holiday Hosting

As you make the seating chart for your Thanksgiving dinner, consider inviting a member of Penn's international student or scholar community to your table. The winter holiday can be a bit lonely, and many from abroad would welcome the opportunity to share in a traditional American holiday dinner or gathering.

While the Office of International Programs will attempt to "match" you with an international student or scholar, we would encourage you to consider inviting a member of your own academic department or unit. If you would like OIP to identify a student or two to join you for your Thanksgiving celebration, please call Shalini Dev Bhutani at 898-4661 or e-mail her at: If you are interested in hosting a student for other winter holiday celebrations, please get in touch with OIP.
