Horizons Logoof the NYS Capital District
is a Christian organization serving international students in the Capital District since 1986. Our goal is to help international students adjust to life here and to promote friendship and understanding between students and members of the community. To that end, Horizons offers group outings, opportunities for cultural exchange, friendships with Americans and
Christian activities.

Horizons small and large group events are open to all internationals living in the Capital District. Scheduled events for the upcoming semester can be found here. We also sponsor formal Friendship Partner programs, allowing students to form one-on-one relationships with Americans from the community. This program is open to students from RPI, SUNY Albany, St. Rose and Union Colleges.

While Horizons is a Christian organization, students need not be Christians to participate. Those from any nationality and all religious backgrounds are welcome. We are affiliated with a national organization, headquartered in Boulder, Colorado. The local Horizons group is not-for-profit and led by a leadership team composed of students and volunteers from the community. For a history of the organization, see this page.
