Global Village Application [华村] (Chinese Village)

Part of the Global Village initiative on campus, Chinese Village strives to unite the Chinese language and the cultures surrounding it in a living experience. Residents come home to speak and hear Chinese. Common areas in Chinese Village give residents the chance to chat casually in Chinese. Daily interaction, periodic meetings, and a range of planned cultural activities (including house meals prepared and shared by residents) enable students to explore their common interest in the culturally diverse Chinese-speaking world and provide a place for residents to exchange stories about their personal experiences in Chinese-speaking countries. Chinese Village welcomes native speakers; non-native students who have lived, traveled extensively, or studied abroad; students preparing to go abroad; and students who will be enrolled in a Chinese course beyond Chinese 210.

Location:
The Chinese Village is located in Tussey Residence Hall.

Amenities:
The Chinese Village shares a newly renovated Global Commons dedicated for use by the residents of the Global Village. The Global Commons is located between Tussey and Terrace Halls and features a central large area for big group activities and presentations and smaller areas for studying, small group meetings, and film viewing. Technology will include cable reception to receive television channels from around the world in various languages. The large shared kitchen provides space for cooking. Global Village residents have their own refrigerator/freezer in a separate room with plenty of storage for plates, pots, silverware, etc., for their use. The Global Village Lounge, adjacent to the Global Commons, is a private dining and lounge area for residents to share meals in large or small groups, use the flat screen television, and make coffee and tea.

Living and Learning Requirements:
The formal requirements for living in Chinese Village include attending periodic meetings, actively participating in Global Village community activities through planning and implementing cultural events. Students are expected to attend dinners and speak in Chinese with fellow residents. Domestic student residents/non-native speakers of Chinese must enroll in a Chinese course for each semester of residence. All residents – domestic student residents and native speakers--must either take Language in Motion for credit or serve as a volunteer for Language in Motion for a minimum of one semester. Students must be beyond the Chinese 210 level in order to be considered. Residency privileges may be revoked at any time if a resident does not adhere to the policies and requirements outlined above.
