GBC Programs & Events

Below are just a few of the many offerings that we plan throughout the year (including during the summer and holiday breaks). All events are promoted through our newsletter and on our Facebook page. 

IMP Yearlong Events 

The International Mentoring Program hosts monthly events, such as IMP Gala, Karaoke Night, and Ice Cream Social to encourage first year undergraduate students and their mentors to connect throughout the year, but the events are open to all international students. 

International Education Week (IEW)

IEW is a nationally designated week to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide in mid-November. GBC partners with Global Brown offices and affiliated student organizations to put on a week of educational, cultural, and social presentations/programs, for example, film screenings, study abroad info sessions, musical performances, and cultural dinners. 

International Festival 

Over 40 cultural and international student organizations come together to promote global awareness on campus each April. Booths sell food, host activities, and give away swag from around the world! There are also many student group musical and dance performances! Open to everyone.

Monthly Trips

Each month, GBC plans an off-campus excursion for international students and their families to explore New England. Trips have included hiking, snow tubing, Boston, New York, bowling, ice skating, Newport, and more.
