Oregon State University and City University in Hong Kong

Hong Kong skylineThis resident assistant exchange is a partnership between Oregon State University and City University (City U) in Hong Kong.

Two students from each university will spend between one to two weeks at the other’s institution every other year. The students selected represent housing services through their role as a resident assistant or resident tutor (the equivalent at City U).

The exchange not only aims to increase awareness of different housing and dining structures internationally but to also provide a cross-cultural experience for those involved. The resident assistants who participated in the exchange from OSU in Spring 2012 were Sophie Wilson and Sam Settelmeyer.

Sophie is the Senior Resident Assistant at the International Living Learning Center, and Sam is a resident assistant at McNary Hall.
