BED & BREAKFAST: When asked to rate their overall experience, past attendees of the College Ethics Symposium have consistently given the highest marks to “staying overnight with Host Families”. For years, local residents have graciously opened their homes and condos for two nights to between 1 to 4 students and/or their faculty advisor. This opportunity gives the visiting colleges a hometown flavor to experiencing Hilton Head Island while allowing the gift of hospitality to be granted by the host family. Because the students spend all day in class, the hosts offer this Bed & Breakfast experience of lodging and a quick start to the day over breakfast. All transportation is supplied by the chaperoning professor regardless whether staying with the students or not. Dinners are supplied by the College Ethics Symposium Committee at a Friday evening reception and by Thursday Night Dinner hosts. History has shown “Bed & Breakfast” and some family time in a friendly setting adds tremendously to the whole experience of these best and brightest college students while they are away from the hectic campus life.
THURSDAY NIGHT DINNER: Some volunteers wishing to help do not have the room or time to act as overnight hosts. However, many local families enjoy entertaining a college group of four students and their professor for an opportunity to gather around the table for a Thursday Night Dinner at home. If you like to cook, if you like to share the blessings of living on Hilton Head Island and if you like being around young people, this is an excellent opportunity to open your home for a 7:00 dinner invitation. All transportation is supplied by the chaperoning faculty advisor. You will enjoy the great conversation and laughter long after these bright young future leaders leave the hospitality of your home. It has become a symposium experience highlight that you may come to anticipate year after year should you choose to be a Thursday Night Dinner Host.
