G.L.O.B.E.

G.L.O.B.E. (Global Learning Overseas By Experience) is a DePaul student organization for returning study abroad students and students interested in studying abroad. The organization provides great opportunities to connect with interesting individuals who have had some amazing experiences with international learning and travel! 

What We Do

G.L.O.B.E.  engages in exploring a variety of cultures and expanding scholarship, volunteer and work options for prospective foreign study students. Our organization often reaches out to the international students of DePaul’s English Language Academy (ELA)​ and International Student and Scholar Services (ISS)​ in order to connect and interact with the international community here on campus. 

There are many benefits in becoming a G.L.O.B.E. member! We hold regular meetings twice a month, sponsor cultural outings in the city of Chicago, and coordinate events on campus, and engage in many exciting festivities for members throughout the year.
