Global Perspectives

It’s a Small World After All

Students living on Point Park's Global Perspectives Living and Learning Community have an interest in the environment.For those who want to travel and to come to a deeper understanding of the global community we all share, this is your floor.

Working with your Community Facilitator (aka CF), you will host international visitors and examine other cultures, learning about their customs, beliefs and art. See how the "global village" affects our lives.
