Be a world-changer through our Global Programs initiative and experience volunteering in another country.

In 2016, our residents had the chance to travel to Cambodia, Nepal, South Africa, Costa Rica, Fiji and Thailand.


  • get involved in cross-cultural programs
  • make a difference in a community
  • connect with other university students from all around the world.

In addition to their involvement overseas, our students also help raise money to support ongoing international development programs.
