International Students - Celebrate Christmas with us!


For over 50 years, Christmas International House (CIH) has been a unique program for International college and university students and scholars to experience friendship and hospitality with an American host community during winter break.   Through CIH, International Students are able to travel and explore a new American city, experience what it is like to live in an American home, and develop life-changing friendships with Americans and other International students.



Christmas International House will be offered for the final year this December 21-28, 2022 in Kansas City only. 


There are limited spots available.

This is an incredible experience that allows for a beautiful exchange of cultures. It will leave you with a more open mind and heart ,and you will build strong bonds through memorable activities-- so strong that it hurts to say goodbye at the end!

You can travel forever, but you probably won't get opportunities or the time to experience celebrating Christmas as another member of a host family again. The meaningful connections you make with the host families and other students are priceless. Don't miss it!
