Dormitory for International Students
Carmichael College (International-House) Carmichael College (International House), founded in 2013, is the first International Residential College in Handong Global University. The motto of the Carmichael family is “ToujourPrest” which means “Always Ready.” Thus, we seek, by God’s grace, to be “always ready” to listen, learn, grow and serve together. Handong Global University’s International House is a dormitory designed specifically to cultivate students with global minds. Many students with vastly different backgrounds live together in this small community. There are activities such as “Carmichael breakfast”,“Sports day” and “Friday Game or Movie Nights” for fellowship between students. Koreans do live in I-House as well and a typical room will house 2 Koreans and 2 foreigners. Roommate will be assigned randomly within team-member.
