Global Villagers Prepare to Explore

This week, the Global Village welcomed our lovely colleagues from the Center for International Education and the Study Abroad Office to our community!

Global Villagers heard about adventures in France, Brazil, Portugal, and other wonderful places.

Academic Adviser Christine Wolf spoke to residents about the Global Studies and International Studies programs. The Global Studies program seeks to prepare students for international careers, and so a semester of study abroad and an internship abroad are requirements for the major.

Global Villagers were able to receive one on one attention about their specific study abroad goals, and many walked away feeling ready to take on the world--literally!

A current Global Villager, Justin, used the time to clarify details on his upcoming study abroad adventures to Austria and Germany in Fall, while other residents were able to search programs and scholarships that best applied to their future plans.

Former villagers Courtney and Brook have been accepted to travel to Morocco and Sweden in 2015, and former villager / current mentor Jason has been accepted to study in Germany.

Hopefully soon we'll hear stories of the 2014-2015 Villagers in France, Argentina, Brazil, and beyond!
