Home Away From Home

Make new friends and learn about a new culture. Whether you are an international or U.S. student, Suffolk’s Home Away From Home program can help you move from feeling alone to feeling at home.

Are you an international student interested in making new friends? Are you a student from the U.S. interested in learning about a new culture? Join the Home Away From Home program! The goal of the Home Away From Home (HAFH) program is to foster supportive relationships and cultural exchange between international and domestic students.

Home Away From Home matches international students with students from the U.S. to provide an opportunity for students to share their cultures and get to know people from around the world. This program provides international students with valuable information and the opportunity to meet and socialize with American students.
