Host Families

Make a Difference ~ Share Your America!

If you have a spare room and an open heart, you can provide a home away from home for an international student in our community.

The experience of an international student can change the course of their life!

LCC welcomes international students from around the world including Australia, China, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, and others. Students range in age from 16-20 and come from a variety of backgrounds.

Most come to LCC to earn an associate degree and transfer to a 4-year university. Some students take English classes full-time before starting their degree programs.

No matter what country the student is from, or what program they pursue, the host family experience is an important part of their American experience. Learn more below.
