USI Friendship Family Program

The USI Friendship Family Program 

The USI Friendship Family Program is designed to encourage international student involvement with American families in the USI and Evansville community. We hope that this type of interaction will be beneficial to the students and families alike. Casual social occasions (dinner, sports activities, holiday visits, etc.) are perfect times to get together with each other for friendship and relaxation. Please note this is not a homestay program.

The friendship family is NOT responsible for:

  • Homestay
  • Money matters
  • Immigration regulations, visas, work permits, etc.
  • Academic counseling or class attendance
  • Registration procedures and payment of tuition

Becoming involved in the program is easy! Interested families and students can download the appropriate application:
