Thanksgiving Media Advisory: Foreign Students Experience American Tradition
Next week, hundreds of foreign students from colleges in the Chicago-area will depart the city to celebrate Thanksgiving with families throughout rural Illinois. Created nearly 50 years ago by Trudy Trogdon of Paris, Illinois to foster international relationships, the annual “Thanksgiving Homestay” program is sponsored by the International House of the University of Chicago. Many of the Illinois families participating have hosted international students for decades. Some host families and international students are second-generation participants.
