Home Plate

HOME PLATE Feeling the need for a little taste of home?

Join “Home Plate,” a University-wide program, and host dinner for WashU Students away from home.

Washington University is looking for warm-hearted families to host 2-3 students for casual dinner and conversation. Help them feel at home in St. Louis and enjoy the company of our incredibly smart and talented kids. We ask that you have two to three get-togethers over the course of the academic year. We also try to match students to family interests.

Email Risa Zwerling to sign up!  She will ask you to host your first dinner in late September or early October; she will provide you with an option of three different dates just to get started.  You and your students plan all subsequent dinners.  There will be a reception at the Chancellor’s residence for all program participants in the spring.

If you are a student and would like more information, email homeplate@wustl.edu.
