Established in January 2003, HSC Cousins provides understanding, friendship and unity among American and International/Exchange students on the HSC campus. The program provides numerous venues for social interaction and opportunities for cultural exploration. Active participation in HSC Cousins includes: attending the official Cousins activities (approximately 3 are held each semester); spending informal time with your HSC Cousin (for example: meeting your cousin for lunch or a meal, taking a study break together, doing something social together, etc.); maintaining communication with your Cousin via phone and/or e-mail; sharing traditions of your culture; and being committed to participate once you are matched. You and your Cousin determine your level of interaction – be creative and have fun with this program!
