I love the cultural diffusion that happens with any event that CENet holds!


There are at least 30 events planned each semester that CENet members can participate in and meet hundreds of students from all around the world. Past events include bowling nights at the Alley, "speed-friending," movie screenings and discussions, Carolina Ballet performances, volunteering at the International Festival, playing baseball with the Miracle League of the Triangle, and more.

Certain CENet members can also apply for our $1,000 study abroad scholarship. Visit the Study Abroad Office's website for more details.
