Boulder Friends of International Students (BFIS) at CU

Since the 1950s, international students have been matched with local hospitality families through the Boulder Friends of International Students (BFIS). With the increase in numbers of international students at CU-Boulder, there is more demand for hospitality families. BFIS matches families with students of similar interests. Students do not live with their families, but meet with them regularly for activities, such as dinners, visits to museums, hiking, or participating in a BFIS sponsored events such as ice skating or picnics. There is also the option for busy families to host for just a dinner. For more information, contact BFIS coordinator Sam Cosgrove, sam.cosgrove@colorado.edu.
