Welcome to 2021! It’s a brand new year, and here in the Global Ed office we are looking forward to a return to student travel. It will take some time before everything rebounds fully, but once the vaccines are more available, I’m confident we’ll see even more students requesting appointments or stopping by he Global Ed office (now in Blake A!) to discuss program options.
But first, a look back to December and the winners of our first ever photo contest! Our thanks to all who participated: 14 contestants, 31 photos across 5 categories, and 75 voters. Hearty congratulations to each category’s winner: Linda Davis, Jachchi Burford, Brendan Dunning, Anthony Vinson, and Caleb Manu! See their winning pictures below; the full slideshow is available in the Additional Resources section of this blog.
