CHAMPS*: A Call for Volunteers to Host Foreign Students

Each year the University of Pennsylvania welcomes more than 700 new students from over 100 countries around the world. For many, this is their first trip to Philadelphia, and their initial adjustment to life in the U.S. can be difficult and stressful. That's why the Office of International Programs (OIP) created CHAMP, the Campus Hosting and Mentoring Program for incoming international students.

-- Joyce M. Randolph, Director, Office of International Programs
