Students, faculty praise global experience at Dialogue of Civilizations Fair
Zach Mega, SSH’21, wants to explore the world.
It’s the primary reason he chose Northeastern. It’s also why he attended the Global Experience Office’s annual Dialogue of Civilizations Fair on Thursday afternoon in the Curry Student Center Indoor Quad.
“I want to travel and make new connections,” said Mega, a first-year politics, philosophy, and economics major. “I want to see new things and experience new things and meet new people.”
His choices are virtually endless: Next summer, more than 60 faculty members will be running dialogue programs in more than 30 countries worldwide, from France and Italy to Poland and Russia. Virtually all of them attended Thursday’s fair, where they extolled the virtues of living, working, and studying in an unfamiliar country.
