Global Engagement Opportunity (GEO) Living-Learning Community

The Global Engagement Opportunity (GEO) is a one-year residential living-learning community that provides students an opportunity to engage in cross-cultural exchange and collaboratively learn about global issues in an equitable and sustainable way. Through friendships with students from across the world and participation in programming, your GEO experience will help you build global awareness, relationships, and networks through globally focused events and programs. This community is open to all incoming first-year students—whether domestic, transnational, or international—who are interested in participating in optional seminars, peer mentorship, and programming with a global focus. Domestic, transnational, and international students are encouraged to participate and can choose to room together.
