Friends to International Students (FIS) offers new international students the opportunity to become acquainted with an American family or individual in the Norman community. This is not a live-in program, but rather a friendship program. It is our hope that your host family can assist you in your first year as you transition into the OU and Norman community. If you choose to participate in this program, FIS will make every attempt to place you with an FIS volunteer family who will extend friendship to you while you are enrolled at OU. Assignments are made on a first come, first serve basis at the beginning of each semester.
