Cultural Outings

International students and scholars have the opportunity to partake in special monthly cultural excursions. Each month the International Center organizes a fun trip to a local event, activity or place of interest! Previous trips have included a Haunted Corn Maze for Halloween, a chocolate bar cooking class, Burlington’s annual Mardi Gras celebration and a visit to a Vermont Maple Sugar Shack.

Community & Campus Engagement

Alternative Breaks

The International Center offers scholarships for international students who sign-up for an alternative break coordinated by the Center for Civic Engagement. The week long alternative break is an opportunity for students to get involved in a local community through a series of hands on volunteer projects. Previous alternative break destinations include central Vermont and New York City. Students submit an essay to the International Center for the scholarship but must apply directly to the Center for Civic Engagement for a spot on alternative break team.
