Living far away from home can be really difficult, especially when you are facing the challenges of a new culture. Reformed University Fellowship International (RUF-I) is a student organization at The University of Texas at Dallas that seeks to welcome international students and scholars. We understand how important your studies are, but we also know you came to the U.S. for more than a degree! We want to help you experience the local community and culture, develop lasting friendships with people from all over the world, and learn about the hope that is found in Jesus Christ.
Dinner and Discussion
Thursdays 7:00-8:15 PM
Beginning January 21
This a great way to meet Americans and other international students and scholars. We have dinner and a Bible discussion together! Conversations are always respectful, intellectually stimulating, and friendly. These will be online using Zoom. We'd love to have you join us!
Airport Pickups, Parties, and More
We are a part of the Big Howdy at UTD. Need an airport pickup? Furniture? Want to join our virtual welcome party?
International Student Bible Study
Mondays 4:00-5:30 pm
We are studying "The Foundations of the Faith" this semester. We'll be looking at important doctrines and why we can trust the Bible. We hope you see how amazing God's grace truly is and grow in understanding and living in union with Jesus Christ. All are welcome to join us and learn about these things with us.
Holiday parties, group outings, and more!
We have many events both on and off campus throughout the year!
Currently postponed due to COVID-19.
