Off-Campus Study Program & Location: InterVarsity Global Project to St. Petersburg & Chelyabinsk, Russia

What did you study while off-campus?

In Chelyabinsk, our project shifted when we accompanied the Chelyabinsk Church of God on an 11-day wilderness retreat in the forests surrounding the Argazi Reservoir.

DePauw graduate Mendy Xu discovered a startling reality when she began her technology internship at one of the nation’s largest banks last summer.

Of the 20 employees on her work team, there was only one woman – her.

“It just shocked me how females are underrepresented in both technology and the business world - especially, in my case, the financial world,” Xu said. “I’m more aware than my peers are about how unequal the gender representation is in business fields, especially the more competitive business fields. That is also a deep-down motivation as to why I did this project.”
