MSU BILLINGS NEWS SERVICES — The English as a Second Language (ESL) program at Montana State University Billings, offered through the Office of International Studies, is in need of host families for their summer program that will take place Aug. 11-31.


Being a host family is a great way to befriend an international student and help make their stay in America fun and rewarding, program organizers say. Host families provide a not only a place to stay, but a stable, friendly environment while the foreign students are Billings. Sometimes those connections last well beyond the initial stay.


If you are interested in hosting an international student for the ESL program, please contact Kayla Broksle, ESL coordinator, in the Office of International Studies at 657-1705 or via e-mail at


Applications can be found at or can be picked up in person at McMullen Hall, Room 200. Applications for homestay families are due by July 17.
