Global Living Community
The GLC is an intercultural living and learning environment for 22 Georgetown undergraduate students, an even mix of both international and U.S. citizens. Located on the 2nd floor of Copley Hall, the GLC is a part of Georgetown's Living and Learning Communities Program. The primary goal of the GLC is to create a community in which intercultural understanding extends beyond the classroom into daily student life.
Applications for upperclassmen applicants (rising juniors and seniors) who are interested in living in the GLC during the 2014-2015 school year are due by Nov. 1st. Applicants can apply here. All applicants must apply for housing eligibility in order to be a member of the GLC. Interviews will take place Nov. 5-7, and decisions will be made after the underclassmen deadline in February. For more information about the GLC, please contact Amy Dorsey at firstname.lastname@example.org.
GLC activities include:
- Fall Retreat
- The GLC begins the year with a one day retreat off campus. Members get to know one another through interactive games, cultural exercises, and outdoor activities, as well as plan for community events and activities throughout the year.
- Global Affairs Banquets (GAB)
- Each month, a member of Georgetown's faculty is invited to share dinner and conversation about current international issues. GABs broaden knowledge of international affairs and provide an opportunity to interact with faculty outside the classroom setting.
- Community Service Activities
- GLC residents participate in a variety of service activities in and around the DC community. Some activities include environmental cleanups, a visit to DC public schools, and participation in Relay for Life.
- Spring Retreat
- In January, the GLC gathers for a day-long retreat to reflect on their experiences thus far and plan for events in the spring semester.
- Culture Nights
- Each semester, GLC residents organize an evening of food, art, and music to highlight the culture of one ethnicity or region of the world represented on the floor.
