What we do

Friday night dinners

Join us on select Friday nights at 6pm at University Presbyterian Church at 110 Henderson St (off Franklin St) for a free meal and fun. Great way to meet both American and international students, share a great meal, and then stick around for a game night, movie night, or some fun activity!

Conversation Partners

Would you like to practice your conversational English skills?  We can pair you up with an American student whom you can meet with on a weekly basis for coffee or a meal and just talk!  Your partner can also help to introduce you to different aspects of American culture.  Email us to get connected!

Transportation help

We organize periodic trips to the grocery, Target, Southpoint, etc. We would also love to help you get to and from the airport. If you have a transportation need or would like to know about our next shopping trip, email us!  We’d love to help you get to where you need to go!


Would you like to have a meal in an American family’s home? Or stay over for a Thanksgiving or Easter holiday? Email us for more information on getting connected.

Sightseeing and Cultural Outings

Want to go to a baseball game? Have a cookout at the lake? Try the famous NC barbeque? Go to Maple View for homemade ice cream? International Friends offers a variety of outings such as these, so email us to get on the listserv.

Church Services

Want to experience an American Christian church service? You might be surprised! Dress is casual and the music is lively. Get introduced to Christianity and what Christians believe. Email us to get a ride with other students to a local church.

Bible Studies

Have you ever wondered what the Bible is all about? Want to understand more about Jesus Christ and how he could affect your life? Join other international students and Americans as we study the Bible in small groups together. Email us for more information, times and locations.
