November went by very quickly in Local to Global. The biggest event we had happen was the visitors that came to Cambridge! We were fortunate to have Dria and Meghan from the Center for International Education come and speak. They talked about study abroad opportunities, how to financially make it work, and the professional benefits of spending time abroad. In addition, they talked about opportunities for credit within global studies majors and minors. The residents had wonderful questions anywhere from where to find scholarships to concerns about adjusting to life abroad. Our guests did a fantastic job of being honest and informative.
Since I studied abroad (Spain, Spring 2015) I was very engaged in the conversations and totally forgot to take any pictures, so sorry!
As a fun, stress-free event before finals, my entire community and the community that includes the Spanish House will be having a gingerbread house-making competition! We are excited to see the creativity of the teams, and our international students are particularly excited to see a stereotypical American tradition unfold.
