Friendship House MSU

The Friendship House MSU is a place where international students and their families can make new friends and practice conversational English. Rich Bearup is the Executive Director of the International Student Ministry-Lansing Area (ISM-LA) and oversees activities at the Friendship House located at 927 Sever Drive (off S. Harrison Rd.) in East Lansing. The goal of this ministry is to help the international student and family members experience American culture, make significant friendships, and adjust to life in the U.S. Some of the way to get involved include teaching an English conversation class, leading a Bible Study, helping out with special events, assisting with quarterly mailings, and interacting with the children.
