About RUF-I

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.
