Bridges International is a caring community committed to serve, promote social connections and engage in spiritual conversations with international students so that students become leaders internationally.
You’ve traveled across the globe and adjusting to life in a new country can leave your head spinning. Let Bridges and other international students who have come before you ease your transition. Who knows? In the future, you might even find yourself serving other international students.
Learn more about how we help here.
You’ve landed in Richmond and while you may have left your family or lifelong friends behind, you can find a home in Bridges.
We host a variety of events to help you engage with others and form new friendships. We have special holiday parties throughout the year, like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentine’s Day and Easter. You will get to know the importance of these events in American culture, enjoy some new food and maybe even learn a new song. The unique nature of a Bridges gathering is how multi-national the makeup is. We want every culture to feel welcome. P.S. It’s totally fine if you want to joke about American culture (we can laugh at ourselves).
While in the U.S. you have the freedom to explore questions about life and God. Everyone has an important perspective and Bridges wants give you a place to share, listen and explore thought-provoking topics with other students about God and faith and its relevance on our lives.
