Bozeman Friends of International Students

Share your culture while learning about another!

BFIS is a voluntary program that was established to encourage friendship with international students and to allow them to get a closer   experience of "the American way of life."  Matches of students and families or individuals are made according to stated interests and preferences to the extent possible.  Ideally, a lasting friendship forms between the community member(s) and student.  There are unlimited ways to build a friendship. Getting together at least once per month is suggested.  Some typical activities for BFIS members are: sightseeing- lunch, dinner or coffee- attending a cultural or sports event- celebrating a birthday or holiday together. To become involved, contact Susan Reisch by email at sreisch@montana.edu or by phone at 994-6462 with any questions. BFIS matches will be made promptly and notification will be given by phone or mail.
