The Local H.O.ME Program: Hospitality Offered by Members of the local community is a pilot program that matches new international students with Scandinavian Cultural Center (SCC) council members and their families for a mutually beneficial learning experience and cultural exchange.
SCC is located at PLU and celebrates the history and culture of Scandinavia with special events, exhibitions and program. SCC Council members are volunteer leaders of SCC. Some are current or retired PLU employee or alumni. They all live locally and have been active with SCC for numbers of years.
Participants of the HOMe program are asked to join an opening social in February and then have a visit at family's home or in the local community at least once during the semester.
