All are welcome.

The University YMCA is a gathering place where people of diverse backgrounds and interests can meet to share with each other, celebrate cultural exchange, and learn about what’s happening in the world in order make change both locally and internationally.

Since 1918, the University YMCA has hosted programs to foster international understanding and cultural awareness and provide service to international students, faculty, and staff.
