Students share about cross-cultural experiences

BLUFFTON, Ohio—Bluffton University students who participated in a cross-cultural experience last spring will speak during a campus forum at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 27, in Founders Hall. The presentations are free and open to the public.

Students who traveled to Bangladesh, Iceland, Chicago, Arizona/Mexico and Appalachia will recount their experiences.  

To fulfill a cross-cultural requirement, Bluffton students may take two semesters of a language, study for a semester in Guatemala or Washington, D.C., or spend two to three weeks in May and June exploring a different culture in the United States or abroad. The experiences give students a chance to serve others, providing new insights, widened perspectives and an increased respect for community.
