While most members of the Brock community head home over the holiday break to spend time with family and friends, hundreds of international students will be left without that option.
With the increasing cost of travel, international students who cannot afford the journey home will celebrate Christmas in Canada away from their loved ones.
In an effort to make their holiday experience a memorable one, Brock International Services has implemented the Home for the Holidays program with the goal of leaving no student behind to spend the festive season alone.
The Home for the Holidays program brings the Brock community together, connecting a host and an international student for a traditional family event. It could mean welcoming students to a special dinner with family and friends, tobogganing, ice skating or watching a popular Christmas movie together.
Brock’s holiday break takes place between Dec. 20 and Jan. 5.
