Host Family Pre-Arrival Orientation - Arrival Day!

  • Before you go to pick your student, check online to verify that the flight arrival time has not changed;

  • If anything happens to prevent you from getting to the airport on time, let your EPC know;

  • You might consider bringing a welcome sign, stuffed animal, and or bottle of water for your student to the airport;

  • It’s normal for everyone to be nervous!  Try to welcome your student without overwhelming them – ask before you hug, and allow them the chance to look around and experience their surroundings.  Remember that they are probably very tired.
