**Holiday Visits can be as simple as an invitation to dinner; it does not need to be a complete host stay.
*Most hosting is needed from the middle of July until school starts after Labor Day. A few requests can come in the first two weeks of January before Spring Semester starts. This is a commitment of 1 to 7 days. Visiting Scholars, however, can come anytime during the year.
