Get Connected

Here are some ways you can get connected with other global students at Biola.

Community Groups

Community groups are global-student specific small groups ranging in size between 8–12 students that meet weekly to connect, check in with one another, engage in events and grow together. This is an awesome way to get to know other global students, participate in events, support one another and build community!

Email for more information about current groups.

MKs and TCKs

You may be an MK (Missionary Kid) or TCK (Third-Culture Kid)…

  • If “Where is home?” is a hard question for you…

  • If you can order food in several languages or your favorite restaurants are on different continents…

  • If you have often had to convert the imperial system to the metric system or Celsius to Fahrenheit to understand the world…

  • If the terms “global nomad,” “cultural chameleon,” and “ex-pat” mean something to you…

  • If you sometimes feel culturally rootless or have trouble identifying with or embracing a single culture.

We have resources and a community for you here! For more information about how to connect with other MKs and TCKs, email
