Expand your sights, open your mind, and discover everyday existence as a global citizen through the exploration of culture, language, and lifestyle—an inclusive community where the whole person is valued. Students will deepen their capacity for learning and understanding shared values, social practices, and expressions.
LEARN WHERE YOU LIVE
Here students design their own adventure and dive more deeply into their passions and skill development around culture, language, and lifestyle. Through special guest lectures, seminars, workshops, social gatherings, and access to both on- and off-campus performances, exhibits, and speakers, students carve their own path of exploration.
Resident Advisor (RA): Work closely with the Global Connections team as a primary resource for students to build a sense of home and support community connections and involvement. Students interested in this position should be on the lookout for RA Info Sessions in November.
