andrear@herald-mail.com Backyard barbecues. Pool parties. Football. Fellowship. These and other aspects of American life have made a lasting first impression upon three foreign exchange students at North Hagers-town High School. Too bad there's no real French bread in Hagerstown. "That's what I miss the most, the bread," said 16-year-old Fabian Guillotin of France, who's living with Todd Roberts in Hagerstown. Fabian, Tomas Hahn of Germany and Thinh "Andy" Nguyen of Vietnam said they wanted to study in the States to improve their English skills and learn about American culture by living it. "I knew this country had a lot more things I could study and open my mind," said Andy, 17, a senior living with Diane Gill in Hagerstown.

FREDERICK, Md. - Hood College needs host families for foreign students. Hosts or "adopted" families help many of these students make a smooth transition into American culture. Host families do not provide living quarters for international students because the students live on campus. Instead, host families are asked to include their students in family-oriented activities, like picnics or shopping excursions. Hood's Host Family Program is growing and seeking more host families this year.

Princeton offers significant financial aid to students To the editor: It was great to read “ To Harvard from here? Yes, it is possible ” by Spence Perry (Nov. 14). It is unfortunate that qualified students in Washington County continue to be discouraged from applying to Princeton or Harvard because of the “high cost.” This, despite major efforts to inform students, parents, educators and administrators in this area that Princeton is firmly committed to meeting 100 percent of the financial need for every qualified student, with an aid package that does not require a loan.

"Is that Mr. Malone?" asked one of the students awaiting the arrival of their Trucker Buddy pen pal, James Malone. A number of false alarms followed until Malone entered, met the group of 20 students from kindergarten through second grade and received a round of applause befitting a visiting dignitary.
