New International Student Gather with Host Families

VES host families and new international students enjoyed dinner and fun together at the home of Alex ’20 and Ella ’22 Showalter. For many of our international students, it was their first time to try chili and s’mores—quintessential American foods perfect for the crisp fall weather. Students roasted hot dogs over the fire, played basketball and corn hole, rode the ATV and make meaningful connections.
Thank you to all the families who brought their delicious chili and the Showalters for opening up their home to 50-plus students!
