Additional Details: 

Project GO students enjoy a rich Chinese-language cultural program, featuring weekly presentations and films; language tables where students engage in conversation, meet native speakers, and learn more about target cultures; and other Chinese-language events. 

Chinese students may also take advantage of IU’s non-Chinese events, including topical and historical presentations by faculty and by students of other programs, cooking and art demonstrations, musical and theatrical presentations, and more.

PGO students are invited to meet with private and government recruiters who come to campus, including the federal intelligence agencies, and they have exclusive access to lectures and coffee hours with senior military leaders with overseas experience.

Indiana University teaches more languages and is home to more Language Flagship Centers than any other school in the country. The university has drawn people from all over the world to Bloomington, contributing an unusually high degree of cultural diversity to the local community. Situated at the edge of the bustling downtown shopping and restaurant scene, the IU campus is widely considered one of the most attractive campuses in the country.
