MUNDO 2 GO features nontraditional discovery opportunities (NDO) that are arranged to occur in campus residence hall communities or in collaboration with other student organizations and groups. Not unlike other MUNDO experiences, these events focus on how to explore issues related to service, learning, and leadership. Stranger Foods, Meet Your Child, and Are You Afraid of the Oval? are three of the most popular MUNDO 2 GO experiences. 

About the Experiences:

Are You Afraid of the Oval?

After meeting at the William Oxley Thompson statue in the Main Oval, our group will be heading to the Oval for a hauntingly fun and informative tour of the history of Ohio State. Note: Some themes and topics of the tour might be triggering for certain audiences.

Meet Your Child 

Have you ever wondered what it might be like you to raise a young person as a parent, guardian or mentor? This activity will allow you to get a glimpse into the excitement and challenges of being responsible for "a chip of the old block." The event will also explore what it means to learn to live with others who might be more unique than we ever imagined. 

Strange Foods? – Why the Difference is the Spice of Life

What does it really mean when we say, "you are what you eat?" Is it possible that the foods we enjoy every day are not just important because of how they affect our physical bodies but also in terms of what they represent about who we are and where we come from? Come join MUNDO as we sample foods from around the globe, engage in a few global case studies, and discuss why it is important to explore this important question.
