International students enjoy local hospitality

 Matthieu Cadieu, from France, and Rebecca Lindsay, from Scotland, join Principal Woolf and his wife, Julie Gordon-Woolf, for dinner in their home. 

Principal Daniel Woolf and his wife, Julie Gordon-Woolf, are among a handful of hosts who have been opening their homes to international students. The program, run out of Queen’s Residence Life, aims to give international students a taste of Canadian hospitality by connecting them with Queen’s staff and faculty. The students, all based at Harkness International Hall, are invited into the staff or faculty member’s home for coffee or a meal.
