Linda Maynard
Associate nurse manager, Health Services


How long have you been a host ‘mom’ for international students?
I have worked at Colgate full time for 15 1/2 years and have had at least one student every year. I probably have had about 40 kids over the years. I had 26 last year because there were not enough hosts, and I always take any student who does not have a host parent.
