Hi everyone, we’re the Global Studies Society! On this website, you can find information about who we are, our meetings calendar, our events calendar, our academic journal MUNDI, and much more!
GSS is a hub for Global Studies students (and friends) to connect through social events, share opportunities such as internships, volunteering, and other resume-builders, and an outlet for conversation and undergraduate work.
Our overall goal is to make your experience as a Global Studies student enriched through not only getting to know your classmates but having a place to stay up-to-date on the unique opportunities here at Temple. We hope to get to know you soon!
