Come meet new friends every Friday at the International House (1400 W. Elizabeth). You do not have to live in International House to attend.



Explore beautiful Colorado and connect with your new home in a fun and active way. Each month, the FCIC organizes outdoor activities for all interested students and community members. The aim of outdoor activities is to provide an active and fun environment for students and community members to enjoy the beauty of Colorado and surrounding states on occasion together. Activities vary from hiking and skiing to snowshoeing and a rodeo trip.



This weekly social gathering is a great way for international women to build community. On Friday mornings, the Women’s Club spends time getting to know each other and discusses a different topic each meeting. Kids are welcome!



Would you like to build some relationships off campus and get more invested in the Fort Collins community and American culture? Then we encourage you to sign up for this program, which pairs you with a Fort Collins family or individual who is committed to sharing their lives with you. You can expect to get together with your International Friend for activities or holidays at least once a month.



Global Ambassadors are CSU International Students who share their culture with classrooms and community groups. You will also enhance your resume, practice your presentation skills, meet new people and make new friends. Everyone is welcome to become a speaker!



Twice a month, students and community members share their experiences of other countries or their home country. Every 2nd Tuesday, the public is invited to attend at the Old Town Library in the large community room at 7 p.m. Every 4th Thursday, the same presenters speak again at the Harmony Library on the Front Range Community College Campus at 7 p.m. Volunteer today if you would like to share your country with the local community!
