Since 1969, Crossroads International has connected international students, faculty & scholars, and their family members with local volunteers for friendship and language education. Crossroads is a group of volunteers from the community that help enrich the experience of international students and build a bridge between people in our community and international students, scholars and visiting faculty at Oregon State University, and their families.

We offer 3 programs, regular events and special activities like our International Film Festival - so there are many ways to get involved and meet people! Volunteer hosts are always needed, and students or scholars may request services at our office or by filling out some of our online forms. 

Programs include: 

  • Conversation School for Women
  • Conversation and Friendship
  • Three-Day Home Stays (for new international students)
  • International Film Festival (every February)
