One of the best ways to continue your experience is to get and stay involved here at Valpo and in your own community. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  1. Be a conversation partner for an Interlink student learning English.
  2. Get involved with, or start, a student organization with an international focus.
  3. Volunteer in Valpo or in your home community.
  4. Consider international work or volunteer experiences during breaks and/or after graduation.
