I am very excited about spending the weekend at your home, and intrigued by your mention of the other student. I do have a policy of meeting people before I join them in this type of activity. Would it be too much to ask for you to send me the young man’s contact information so that I can arrange a short meeting with him before Friday? Alternatively, you could send him my info and ask that he contact me in the next day or two.
