What is MEAL @ Michigan?
MEAL @ Michigan is an opportunity for U-M faculty and staff to host international students at their home for a meal. The program is a great opportunity for cross-cultural exchange, and to showcase what U.S. households are really like (outside of what people see in movies and on TV). This exchange is meant to be informal and relaxed, but we will provide both hosts and students with guides filled with tips, suggestions, and advice from past participants so the night runs as smoothly as possible. Take advantage of the opportunity to meet and share a meal with people from all around the world at Michigan!
U-M faculty/staff are the hosts and international students are the guests! Up to four international students will be matched with one host through an application process coordinated by the International Center.
When does it happen?
MEAL @ Michigan happens on a Friday or Saturday night (hosts and students are only matched for one date, depending on availability). Exactly program dates are usually announced at the beginning of the semester. We usually suggest eating between 6-9pm, and hosts will have to communicate what time students should arrive and how students will get to and from the hosts home.
How do I become a host or guest?
Fall 2019 dates will be announced by September.
