Fairmont Homestay is excited to announce a new ambassador program for the 2017-18 school year. Homestay selected four upperclassmen who have shown exemplary leadership in the Fairmont community. The ambassadors serve as student mentors for their fellow Homestay students on campus.

The Fairmont Homestay program pairs international students with host families during their schooling at Fairmont, creating a “home away from home.” We are happy to be able to extend that home with our new ambassadors.
