Nicole Studying Overseas at Goucher College

My time at Goucher… …has been amazing! Being international student already at USC I felt pretty prepared for most things. A good thing about Goucher is their InterConnect program that we were fortunate enough to be the first ones to be a part of. The program introduces you to the different things you might go through your time here and where you can turn for … Continue reading Nicole Studying Overseas at Goucher College

Charles studying overseas at University of Mississippi

During my final day as a student in Oxford, Mississippi, I exited Ventress Hall and stood awestruck. Aesthetically, the architecture of Ole Miss’s Liberal Arts College sits somewhere in-between Schloss Neuschwanstei and the mind of Walt Disney. Perhaps the most peculiar quality of Ventress Hall is that, despite its diligent preservation and staggering form, it aligns perfectly with the attitude of Ole Miss, as well … Continue reading Charles studying overseas at University of Mississippi

Bec studying overseas in the United States of America

  I am a recently graduated science student, majoring in sustainability. My passions lie in sustainable agriculture and environmental conservation. In order to gain additional  ‘real world’ experience in this area, I accepted the offer to study abroad during the second-last semester of my undergraduate degree. So in 2015, I  undertook  two work-place learning courses (WPL310, WPL311) in the United States of America. The first … Continue reading Bec studying overseas in the United States of America

Lili studying overseas at California State University Monterey Bay

From the moment I received my acceptance letter in the mail I knew I was about to embark on an amazing adventure and a year to remember, but there is really nothing that can prepare you for the experience you will have while on exchange because your experience is as unique as the people you will meet and every bit as incredible as you hope! From the … Continue reading Lili studying overseas at California State University Monterey Bay

Nathan at The University of Mississippi, Oxford

I’ve always been a person who jumps on the opportunity to get out of the country every chance I get, and what better way to exploit this habit then by participating on the Study Overseas program. I had always wanted to study abroad and looking into it only confirmed my desire to. It started with picking somewhere to go; now this was not an easy … Continue reading Nathan at The University of Mississippi, Oxford

Evangeline at Millersvilles University, Pennsylvania

The strange thing I have found out about travelling is that you learn more about your home, yourself and where you came from, whilst living 15,244 kilometres away from it. After my incredible experiences (good and bad) at Millersville University, Pennsylvania I feel as though I will never come home to the same place or person I left at the Sunshine Coast, and I consider … Continue reading Evangeline at Millersvilles University, Pennsylvania

Amy in the USA

  I’m doing my semester abroad at Louisiana State University in southern USA and I’m having the time of my life! Louisiana is known for their ‘southern hospitality’ because the people here are so friendly and go out of their way to make your visit a memorable one. LSU is situated in a college town where everything is designed for students. There is always something … Continue reading Amy in the USA

I’emari from USA: Aboriginal community

Waking up on a Monday morning, the only thing that was on my agenda for the day was to meet with my group concerning our debate for class for about an hour to just discuss some recent data that we had collected, a good jog afterwards, and to end complete it with yet another relaxing day to enjoy the Mid Semester Break. Fortunately, those plans … Continue reading I’emari from USA: Aboriginal community

I’emari from USA: Cultural Appreciation

Today I noticed that the feeling of being “Home Sick” was actually turning into appreciation and curiosity. This is because I began to have more of a deeper appreciation for my friends, family, and culture. I now understand why my family is so close and why tradition is so important in all of our lives. It is a way to stay connected to our ancestors. … Continue reading I’emari from USA: Cultural Appreciation
