Are you interested in sharing your home and community life with international students enrolled at Mayville State University? Consider getting involved with International Friends of Mayville (IFM), a volunteer community organization coordinated by the Office of Cultural Diversity and Inclusion at Mayville State University.

The organization is looking for community families who will sponsor activities for and assist the international students enrolled at Mayville State. Hosts may choose to entertain students in their homes and include them in family activities such as sporting events, dinners, concerts, shopping, sight-seeing, family gatherings, holidays, community events, and other activities which may be of interest. This is not a host family program, but rather a friendship family program.

For more information on how you may get involved, contact Dr. Dina Zavala-Petherbridge at 701-788-4650 or
