UTEP currently has over 2,000 international students from 65 different countries and there are many more at El Paso Community College, Texas Tech Medical Center not to mention internationals working in our community. The world has truly come to El Paso.

The International Student Fellowship (ISF) has been offering friendship and practical help to international students, scholars, and their families in the greater El Paso area since 2010. We are sponsored by First Baptist Church of El Paso.

Students from all religious and ethnic backgrounds are invited to participate in all ISF activities.
