Austin Bridges is the local expression of Bridges International, a non-profit organization that seeks to serve and resource the international student community on university campuses throughout the country. We help equip students to connect socially, grow as servant-leaders, and become spiritually whole during their time in college.
We at Austin Bridges are a community of internationals and Americans, students and community members who desire to encourage and help international students have positive experience in college. At the University of Texas, we provide opportunities such as a weekly conversation club, service opportunities, seminars that address relevant issues, and small groups to help students connect and grow together. Many of us have found our inspiration for these things from Jesus, who loved people and gave his life for them. We are blessed to know and to host students and scholars from around the world. We hope that you will be too.
We welcome people from all nationalities, cultures, and faiths. In fact, we think diversity is a our strength! We hope you join us!
