Gaining exposure to a new culture is easy, affordable, and exciting when families host international students in their homes. Pierce College Fort Steilacoom is now seeking host families for several international students this academic year.
Students pay a monthly stipend to host families to cover expenses. In exchange, host families provide the student with their own furnished bedroom and meals (several meal options are available), and live no farther than a short commute by bus to and from Pierce College Fort Steilacoom in Lakewood.
