Dr. Daniella WiddowsDirector of Global Education and Study AbroadOctober 16, 2020 Well, September was a busy month and so, here it is October!

August 2020

Dr. Daniella Widdows Director of Global Education and Study Abroad August 31, 2020   It’s been great seeing so many familiar, albeit partial, faces and meeting new students these past couple of weeks!  Office traffic in our new location at Blake A so far is very similar to last year’s, which given the new building and the global pandemic is wonderful.   Please don’t hesitate to mask up and stop by!  My office has room for social distancing and enough equipment to meet and do the advising process safely.   We are still building our fall events calendar, but here are […]

Another great read is from this spring’s Record and its Student Spotlight section. […]

April Notes from the Director

Dr. Daniella Widdows Director of Global Education and Study AbroadApril 29, 2020 We have a new location! After many wonderful years in Bagby Hall, Global Ed is now in Blake A 100/105.  Once campus reopens, we’d love to see you!  In the meantime, emailing or scheduling a virtual meeting is the best way to contact us while Ms. Wright and I are working remotely most of the week.    Usually at this time of year, we are working with dozens of students as they prepare to go abroad during the summer.  Of course, recent events mean that for the safety of all, […]
