Host an International Student Over the Holidays

As we get closer to the holidays, we are reminded to counting our blessings and spreading Christmas cheer! Many of our International Students will be staying in London over the holidays and some do not have friends or family to spend Christmas with. If you are in London this Christmas, and enjoy the opportunity to host an International Student for a holiday dinner, please contact Lissette Ochoa: International Program Coordinator 519-432-8353 ext. 28012 or email


Our World at Brescia

Student Connector Program – The Student Connector Program is an informal program that connects incoming international students with upper year students. The purpose of the program is for the upper year students to act as ambassadors and welcome the international students and assist with the transition to Brescia and London.

These partnerships enhance our cultural awareness and continue to build our Brescia community.
