Global Engagement at UFV

Here at International, we offer both international and domestic students a variety of intercultural global engagement programs in a virtual setting in light of COVID-19 restrictions.

To take full advantage of your university experience, you want to make the most out of your time out of the classroom. Getting involved with activities on or off campus is a great way to gain experience and skills, meet people from many cultures, and have fun.

The Global Lounge

Some consider it their home away from home, while others like to chill in our comfortable seating and watch a show on the biggest TV on campus. Whatever your reason for stopping by, we'd love to see you!

Charlotte Xia during UFV Holi festival

On March 6th, we joined the Holi celebration, which was very new to me. It was the first time I heard about this Indian event and we had so much fun with all the colour throwing and were unrecognizable by the end.

We were crazy about it. And in the afternoon of the same day, we also joined the Lunar Year party, and I liked the food there. These three months have been awesomely incredible, and I am looking forward to other future events.
