International Student with homestay "mom" making dinner 

This option offers the international student the opportunity to live with an American family. The student can learn firsthand what family life in the United States is like. Homestay is a great way to make friends and improve English skills. Some homestays are within walking distance of the campus; others are within an easy public bus ride of Citrus College.

Every homestay is different -- some families have children and others do not, some families provide the student with a room and home cooked meals, and others provide the room only.

Citrus College refers students interested in the homestay option to Student International Housing, Inc., a college homestay provider. An S.I.H. representative will help you find the most friendly and loving family at the right location to make your stay in the United States more memorable.
