Danish Students from Vejle Business College Return to Grand View

April 20, 2022

In September, Grand View will welcome 16 Danish students and 2 instructors from the Vejle Business College in Denmark. The students will visit GV classrooms, give a presentation about their country, learn American customs and traditions, and tour local sites. Due to the pandemic, we haven’t been able to see our friends from the Vejle Business College since 2019 so we are excited to welcome them back to our campus.  

We are seeking interested faculty, staff, and friends of Grand View who would be willing to host two or more of the Danish students for 4 nights. The delegation will arrive at the Des Moines Airport late evening on Tuesday, September 13 and will depart the morning of Sunday, September 18. Due to their late arrival on Tuesday, September 13, they will be staying in a hotel this night.

Hosting consists of providing the students with an experience of what life is like in an American family home, along with a place to sleep and transportation to and from campus. Former Vejle students have told us that the home stays are a highlight of the visit – so the time and effort you give to these students is extremely valuable and memorable.   

If interested, please contact Corinna King at cking@grandview.edu or 515-263-2802.

Please know that students and instructors will be vaccinated against Covid-19, and will be following current CDC travel guidelines.
