Global Studio

Create, discover & connect

Being distanced and online doesn't mean we can't connect!

The HLS Global Studio hosts creative events, movie streams, trivia contests, and more to promote wellness and bring our community closer together.

Check this page frequently for information on new events, international recipes, music, and more. We hope it'll help you meet more people in the HLS community, discover a new passion, and—most importantly—de-stress!

Fattoush is a Levantine salad made from toasted or fried pieces of khubz combined with mixed greens and other vegetables, such as radishes and tomatoes. This is a healthy, easy, and incredibly delicious recipe that was suggested to us courtesy of HLS Senior Abby Krulik and HLS Professor Iman Alramadan!

Join the HLS Fitness Challenge

Are you trying to get (or stay) active? Do you need to get out of the house and clear your head? Does Fido need a trip around the block? Whatever your reason for walking or jogging, record your steps as part of the weekly HLS Fitness Challenge!

Challenge dates

December 22–February 28.

How it works
  1. Get moving!
  2. Submit your weekly steps (Sunday–Saturday)
    Send us a picture or screenshot of your steps/distance on a pedometer, Fitbit, Apple Watch, cell phone, or other device.

Each week, we'll add it all up and see how far our community has traveled. We'll also shout out our top travelers (more on prizes soon!). So what'll it be, HLS? Can we walk the Camino de Santiago? The Suez Canal? The Great Wall?

Stay active with us and find out!
