The Global Corner Roommate Program offers a unique residential experience, focused on cultivating worldwide perspectives through learning, friendship and community. 

The program pairs students studying abroad with those from the U.S. who are passionate about global citizenship. Both international and domestic students in the cohort use their new connections as starting points for social and academic growth.

Noah Ryall '25 helps fellow members of the Global Corner Roommate Program decorate their student longue in Prosser Hall.

Residents living in the Global Corner will engage in special opportunities for learning, such as a pre-orientation program and a foundational course focused on global citizenship.

These and other programs will facilitate interactions between students with diverse life experiences, backgrounds and world perspectives. If you have a passion for pairing a global perspective with your Muhlenberg experience, this is the program for you.

"You get the chance to understand people and see them through their own lens."
