We've had a few exchange students as members. I know it's totally different on the fraternity side, but it has always been a great experience for the members and for the individual. One of my fellow founders was Japanese. His grandfather was an American POW (a Japanese prisoner of the U.S.) in WWII and had talked up America to his family ever since the War as back in those days, we treated Japanese POWs far better than they expected to be treated.

We've kept in touch for around 20 years and he actually flies in every few years for alumni events. This can be a very special experience and a really unique way to immerse yourself in the U.S.
