serving international students in Denver

Regular Help and Fun:

Airport Arrival Help

We will be offering airport pickups to as many students as we can accomodate during the month of August. It is an exciting and scary time when you first arrive in a foreign land. We would love to be the first ones to welcome you to the U.S. Click below to request a ride.

Usually at the beginning of the semester

Welcome Family

New students who would like an American friend and some assistance in their first 3 days in America are encouraged to apply for a welcome host family. Host families offer friendship, English assistance, basic arrival help (bank accounts, apartment finding, etc.) and a place to stay for up to 3 nights. The spots available are very limited. Please submit a request if you have interest in this kind of help.

Usually at the beginning of the semester
