Welcome to St. Louis, your new home for the next four years! Get to know yourself and the wider community before your first year even begins with the Gateway to Global Citizenship program. St. Louis and its neighborhoods boast a rich history of diverse people and cultures, which allow us to explore the world in our own backyard. Together we will discover different cuisines, understand themes of diversity and inclusion, and delve into the ways culture influences communities and individuals to form identity. Through engaging discussion, guest speakers, volunteering, workshops, and excursions, this four-day experience is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to get to know yourself, the WashU community, and this city. Join us as your first of many St. Louis families: made up of peers, professors, and upperclassmen students who will help you find your place in your new home.
