We are very excited to welcome you to campus this August and have been working hard to make necessary adjustments to your Learning Community experience in order to meet the guidelines put forth by health officials and the university. With every announcement made related to adjustments for Fall 2020, we want you to know that Learning Communities are committed to fostering a great experience for our students.
One modification to your Learning Community experience relates to designated housing that may have been previously communicated through the application process. University Housing is following the direction of the university and local health officials to determine the best way to move forward with assignments. Normally, Learning Community students are required to live in designated floors within specific residence halls; however, given the direction University Housing must take in keeping student’s health and safety a priority, we are unable to guarantee students will be assigned to a specific hall. Regardless of where a student is assigned within housing, they will still be able to participate in the Learning Community, and we will work closely with our University Housing partners in supporting the residential experience of students within their assigned hall. While things may look different in the fall, in partnership with other residential learning communities and University Housing, we are committed to providing experiential components that will positively contribute to your CSU experience.
Finally, more information from your Learning Community will be sent to students regarding any orientation dates and other requirements.
Please see the recent communication from Housing for information related to the assignments process. For latest information, you can also check: https://housing.colostate.edu/covid-19. If you have specific questions about your residence hall assignment you can also contact University Housing by email, email@example.com.
Please contact your Learning Community for more specific information.
We thank you for your cooperation and stay safe and enjoy the rest of the summer. We look forward to seeing you in August!
Global Village (GV) is an inclusive, intercultural learning community that brings together international and domestic students in order to:
• Support a successful transition into university life academically, socially and culturally; and
• Foster exploration and appreciation of each other’s cultures
You’ll have the unique opportunity to live with and get to know students from around the world. Our community is one where who you are is important—wherever you may be from—and where we value learning about each other, our cultures, and our stories. You will be supported by GV Mentors and a Community Coordinator as you transition into life at CSU and will have the chance to participate in numerous activities designed to develop your academic success, create cultural connection and understanding, and build leadership skills in a diverse world. Global Village is the place to form long-lasting friendships, discover new cultures, and understand what it means to be a part of a global community, now and in the future.
More information on community requirements and how to apply can be found here.
