Why YOU Should Study Abroad!

Many years after my own exchange experience, I enjoy touching base on the value of these programs. The world needs exchange students more now than ever, since relationships are built between people over a cup of coffee, a meal, and a respect for each other’s culture. Here’s a blog by Le Petit Traveler about why YOU should be an exchange student (this can apply to your children if you are a parent). This is but one student’s experience. I am not necessarily endorsing this university, but any program that encourages students to travel abroad and provides the assistance for them to do so safely, whether it’s with a college professor who travels with you or you travel to a family who hosts you. Personally, I believe that living with another family (versus living in a dorm with other students from your home country) is a more immersive and challenging experience. The farther you go out of your comfort zone, and the more challenges you face, the more you grow as a person. Bon voyage, and enjoy!

Their goal is to give students the opportunity to live in a new country while learning about the world around them. As the Dean of the International Programs, Dr. Jeffrey Hopper, says, “Make the world your classroom”. Their goal is to give students the best experience abroad by teaching them about the city…

If You Really Want to Appreciate Some Place, Leave

Yesterday on the Fourth of July in the United States we celebrated Independence Day from England back in 1776, when the colonies declared independence (then had to fight for seven years to make it so). There have been funny celebratory remarks on social media celebrating the day, such as "Happy Treason Day" or "The Original... Continue Reading →

Celebrating the Sun, Our Favorite Star

Today in the northern hemisphere June 21, 2017 at 12:34 am marks the summer solstice, the longest day of sunlight. (And my parents' anniversary!)
