American host families

During the time Northwestern is your home away from home, we’ll also match you with an American host family living in or near Orange City. Your host family will remain the same throughout your years at Northwestern. They’ll invite you to their home for weekends, holidays and school vacations to share family life and American food. Many international students remain close to their host families after they leave Northwestern.




For the second consecutive year, Northwestern College is ranked in a tie for fourth among Midwestern baccalaureate colleges in U.S. News & World Report’s America’s Best Colleges guidebook. Learn more
