Signing up for Home Plate is easy!

Join Home Plate, a university-wide program, and be matched with a welcoming host family.

Online Application

Due to the current COVID pandemic, we feel it is wise to not place new students with Home Plate families at this time.  Students who are already part of the Home Plate program can enjoy virtual visits and support from their Home Plate families during this stressful time.  I have encouraged families to reach out so their students can feel a “touch of home away from home”.  Please contact the First Year Center at if you have any questions or need some assistance.
