Global Village

Herrig Residence Hall is proud to offer the Global Village Theme Area.

Are you interested in living with someone who is from an entirely different background than yourself? The Global Village will pair students from the United States with International students to do just that! What an amazing opportunity to live and interact with people from differing backgrounds, experiences, countries and view points!

You will be able to build bridges, share a multicultural environment, and truly prepare for the global workplace and lifestyle.
