What is Friends Around the World?

Friends Around the world is hosted by Evangel Baptist Church and a growing number of churches in the Youngstown area.  This organization supports international students by providing:

  • Events and outings planned on campus and in the surrounding areas
  • Supper Club dinners with an American host family

What type of Events and Outings are sponsored by Friends Around the World?

Friends Around the World provides many events and outings throughout the school year.  You can sign up for as many events as your are able.  These events have included such things as:

  • Ice skating
  • Fall festival/Hayride
  • Holiday parties
  • Hikes
  • Sports events
  • Roller Skating

What is Supper Club?

Supper Club’s purpose is to provide YSU international students with an American host family where you will be invited to have dinner in their home a couple of times during the semester.  This is a great way for students to get to know an American family and experience what it is like to have an American family dinner!

We ask each student and host family to commit to two dinners during a semester.  Your host family will contact you and work around your schedule when planning a dinner.  The dinners and transportation are free to all international students who sign up for Supper Club!
