Tech seeks families to host international students for Thanksgiving
The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology is seeking families who would like to invite an international student to Thanksgiving dinner.
“ This is such a traditional American holiday, it’s good for these students to experience that,” Suzi Aadland, director of Tech’s Ivanhoe International Center, said.
Tech faculty and staff have invited international students to Thanksgiving for years. This is the first time the university is inviting the public to take part.
Tech hosts 175 students from 25 countries.
Call Aadland at 394- 6884 or Heather Fannin at 348- 7696 before Nov. 20 to invite a student to your home.
