Happy Spring Time!

Spring is here and the countdown to the end of the semester has begun. With just 2 1/2 weeks left before finals, your students are hard at work. Consider sending them a few words of encouragement in this final push or inviting them to take a break and enjoy the beauty and sunshine of spring time in Georgia.

This is our final Oxford Host Families newsletter for this academic year. I hope you have found these communications helpful. I'd also like to extend my sincere thanks to you and your families for participating in the Host Family Program and providing such wonderful support to our international students. I hope you've found this to be a rewarding experience.

Summer Storage - We'd like you to know.

Oxford College does not store returning students' personal belongings over the summer. Most often our international students share a storage unit rental with friends at one of the local Covington storage facilities. Our office will provide transportation to help students store their belongings at one of these locations. Should your student ask you about summer storage options, you may help them find listings for local storage facilities or refer them to our office where we're happy to assist them.

ISP transportation to Covington storage facilities will be provided April 28 - May 4. Students must schedule an appointment with ISP in advance.
