Global Learning Week 2020
Pepperdine's 5th annual Global Learning Week (January 21-24, 2020) seeks to enable the Pepperdine community to further develop global citizenry skills in order to maximize their positive impact throughout the world. The theme of the week is: Explore, Engage, Embrace. Explore by going abroad, Engage by being a global citizen, and Embrace by connecting with international students and opportunities for working abroad after graduation.
By attending certain events (identified by a ticket image), Seaver students can enter the raffle to win prizes. The grand prizes are an iPad, a $2,000 and a $1,000 International Programs scholarships. The OISS and IP offices will provide the opportunity for Seaver students to gain raffle tickets.
The more raffle events one attends, the more tickets one enters into the raffle, and the greater the chance to win! Look on the schedule (link below) for the raffle ticket events. Winners will be announced at the GlobalFest event on Thursday, January 24th and, if needed, contacted via their Pepperdine email address and will have a specific amount of time to respond*.
