Global Village

The Global Village is open to new students, American and International, in ANY major or college. The main requirement is a sincere interest in meeting and learning about people from other countries and cultures. We endeavor to pair American and International students in each room. All Global Village students take one academic class and a service-learning class together, which helps us bond as a group and also get out into the community. Our most recent project was gleaning leftover food from area farms to be delivered to our regional food bank. The required academic class may change, but it will always be a class that “counts” for university general education requirements.
