How can I expand my understanding of global affairs? Join the Reves Hall living learning community!
Reves Hall is William & Mary's own "Global Village," housing international and domestic students with an interest in international affairs. Reves Hall is designed to foster an inclusive atmosphere that encourages students to pursue global scholarship, engage in intellectual debate, develop cross-cultural competence, and expand their awareness of the issues that affect our interconnected global community.
Students commit to participating in Reves Hall programs and activities which include:
- An exclusive core academic experience for residents through participation in a 1 credit course “The Global 21st Century”, taught by renowned scholar, Dr. Stephen Hanson, Vice Provost for International Affairs. This Fall 2013 course (GBST/IR 390) is required of students selected to live in Reves Hall and the course is only open to Reves Hall residents. It will meet in the Reves Room from 3:30-5:00pm on Wednesdays. Combining lectures by visiting and W&M faculty, this course will highlight some of the key international movements that have influenced our current global society. The course will culminate with a 5-6 page paper.

- Reves Hall Coffee Hour: A speaker series with informal discussions between students, professors, and other guest speakers on global affairs.
- Cultural and Social Events: International potluck dinners, pumpkin carving party, holiday festivities, etc.
