Monthly Community Socials

Prior to departure, all participants across every location are invited to attend a monthly Community Social. The Social is a virtual space to:

1. Meet your community. We will have group activities and breakout rooms to participate in both large and small group conversations.
2. Connect with the Verto team. Have a question? We have an answer! Meet our amazing team and get the support you’re looking for.
3. Build your skills. Add new global leadership practices to your toolbelt —you’ll need them for your upcoming year.

Monthly Location Hangouts

Act global, think local – meet students headed to your same location! Each month the Community Team, made up of Student Onboarding Advisors and Student Leaders, will host a Location Hangout for each Verto location. Through a mix of whole-group activities and small breakout rooms, this is a great space to meet the group that will be your classmates, roommates, and closest community during your upcoming semester abroad.
