SU’s Hosts to International Students Program (SUHISP) matches incoming full-time international undergraduate students with SU family (faculty members, student's family, administration,alumni and SU Alumni Family Counsil)
The program helps students make the transition to SU and life in Turkey, gives hosts the opportunity to learn about other cultures and perspectives, and can serve as a springboard for friendships that often last beyond a student’s stay at SU.
Students in SU don’t live with their hosts. Instead, they join their hosts in activities that expose them to aspects of life in Turkey that they might not otherwise experience; for example, dinner at a host’s home or sightseeing around İstanbul. Participating in the program is voluntary for both students and hosts.
We limit student participation in SU to full-time international students who have never lived in Turkey before coming to SU and who don’t have close relatives who live in Turkey.
