So I’m running the social media platforms for the Office of International Programs at UNLV. I’ve published my first post on facebook this morning and look forward to bringing you scholarship information, travel tips, and program updates for all your study abroad needs.
If you have any interest in travel as an undergrad or perhaps in research abroad as a graduate student, we’re your go-to office.
My amazing friend Hyo is spending her summer biking across America, over 4,000 miles from Baltimore to San Diego, in order to raise money and awareness for cancer. Hers is a truly inspirational story of passion, action, and strength. Hyo is a great example of what a community ally looks like.
The challenge of biking across the Unites States also comes with the task of raising $5,000. If you are in any way able to help her get just a little further in her journey, I encourage you to donate to her cause through the link. If you can’t, you can still follow her journey and training leading up to her epic ride this summer.
Hello, we saw you are studying abroad! We are StudentsGoneGlobal[.]com, a cool new blogging platform for the study abroad and student community. We would love to have you blog with us while are you abroad. We just launched so check out our homepage, "Request an Invite" in the top right corner. The site is only for students and universities and we would like it to be used for study abroaders hoping to connect & gain followers!
Just got home. Hopefully next time isn’t too far off, and it’ll either be in China again or some Latin American country.
We got an early start this morning and trekked over to Tiananmen Square. Chairman Mao’s embalmed body is displayed every morning at the Mausoleum of Mao Zedong. That was officially the longest snaking line of people I’ve ever seen.
I gave up though, I wasn’t committed enough to wait through hours of rain and wet socks. Instead I came back and am sitting with a hot cup of coffee. I’m leaving in a few to explore Beijing’s amazing Art District.
Tonight, I have plans to sit in one of the city’s famous rooftop bars. I want one last view of China’s ancient architecture before I get on a plane.
This is my last day in China. That sounds so strange.
It’s important to be versed on Chinese drinking culture if you’re living in China. You don’t just pronounce a “cheers” and drink with everyone, you have to toast each person individually as the night progresses. Well that, and other things brought to you by Matador network.
