Where You Will Live

What We Do

The World Travelers Living and Learning Community actively explores our world through academic study, discussions, and many other activities. The first semester of involvement includes taking a World Geography course together. Discussions may be formal – based on a specific reading about a place or issue – or informal where students discuss their thoughts and ideas about the world and international events.

Activities vary, but may include attending presentations on an international topic, exploring the option of studying abroad, organizing a gathering with international students for a potluck, or attending an international festival or other cultural events.
