STUDENT STORIES



NOTES FROM THE DIRECTOR

Dr. Daniella Widdows
Director of Global Education and Study Abroad
June 15, 2021

The summer is here in full swing and many are eager to travel now that some restrictions are being lightened.  Indeed, we have four students studying abroad this summer in Greece, Italy, and Spain.  Be sure to check out the blog posts (link above) from two of them: Taylor McGee (now in Spain) and Zac Richman (heading to Italy in July).

A big welcome to our new, incoming students this fall!  I look forward to meeting you this week and next during summer orientation.  Do stop by during the afternoon Open House hours (2-4 pm) and say hello.

And as you shape your goals and dreams for the future, here are two great examples of alumni reflecting on how studying abroad as a student expanded their horizons — and opportunities! — after graduation and later in life:

  1. Glen Carter II ’08: studied abroad in Argentina
  2. Brian Grogan ’73: studied abroad in France
Go global, Tigers!
