The History and Ongoing Legacy of International House in Philadelphia


For more than a century, International House has been fostering multicultural understanding, helping students find commonalities, and making visitors feel at home in Philadelphia. WRTI's Susan Lewis takes a look at International House, which is currently home to students from 95 different countries - all living together in University City.

As senior producer of arts and culture, Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and producer of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series, to which she also contributes weekly intermission interviews. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
