Each September, FFIS hosts a picnic welcoming new international students to the UO and our community. University and community leaders often attend to give our visitors a warm welcome.
Welcome to FFIS
Thanksgiving is a unique American holiday that FFIS volunteers share with international students by hosting them for Thanksgiving dinner. Students appreciate the hospitality, good food, and opportunity to make new friends. Apply to share your Thanksgiving with international students.
Each year, FFIS hosts a potluck to recognize active volunteers and their contributions to the FFIS organization and international understanding.
