Bridges International at Purdue is an international student organization and caring community that exists to…


  • Connect international and American students from all backgrounds through fun, food, and friendship

  • Serve the international student community

  • Create space for spiritual conversation and growth

…so that students are equipped to become tomorrow’s international leaders.

We are a Christian ministry, and while some of us follow Jesus, we welcome everyone as we seek to be a home away from home.

When I came to the US, I didn’t have any furniture, but Bridges really helped me make my apartment feel like home.

Spiritual Conversations

While in the US you have the freedom to explore questions about life and faith. Bridges International wants to help you think through those questions and discover truth about Jesus from the Bible. Explore topics like: does god exist, what is the meaning and purpose of my life, and more.

I didn’t know anything about Jesus, but my friends in Bridges helped me to learn and find the answers for myself.
