University of Alabama at Birmingham RUF International

Welcome to UAB! RUF-I is a Christian student organization that seeks to serve our international guests through friendship and hospitality. We are thrilled to have you on our campus, and we know that living in a foreign country isn't always easy. We hope to help make this one of the best times in your life. We host dinners, discussion groups, and activities to help international students and scholars meet others, experience American culture, and explore the deep questions of life. We work with the local church to help provide free services such as ESL tutoring, rides to grocery stores, and furniture delivery. Please email me if you have any questions, needs, or just want to hang out.
