Living on the UO campus gives you the opportunity to join an academic residential community (ARC). Each ARC is centered around a common theme, and students living in these communities will select roommates from the same community, creating strong bonds with peers who share your interest or identity. The Global Engagement Community is a great option for students interested in both learning and living in a global community.
The Global Engagement community ARC: The Global Engagement community is an active experiential learning environment that provides residents the opportunity to bring together a focus on global issues facing our world with a language study of their choice. Students can apply their learning in real world contexts through study abroad experiences, career connections with an international focus, and connecting with faculty and staff around unique research opportunities in their area of study.
“Through this experience I had discovered people that I loved, a culture that challenged me, and most importantly I felt like I found myself.”
- Mercedes Wright, Intensive Italian in Lecce.
“My speaking-Spanish language consistency definitely improved while studying abroad, however I also learned to be proud of my Spanglish, because at the end of the day it demonstrates the influence both the Mexican and Northwest have had on my life.”
- Jules Martinez-Plancarte, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM) Exchange.
“My biggest piece of advice for your internship is to be proactive, because the experience is largely what you make of it. The second thing is to find a balance between work and play. While big cities like Shanghai are full of things to do, don’t let that distract you from gaining work experience that could help you land a job back in the U.S. Finally, get to know your coworkers! It may be intimidating to approach them at first, but building these relationships is the key to a successful internship."
- Ava Jamerson.
