Where students go

  • Vietnam

                       Just like a record stuck on replay, my summer repeated the same routine over and over. What could possibly be different that Saturday morning besides my dad barging into my room demanding that my brother and I start packing that very moment? I stared at the tickets to Vietnam...

    This summer I had the exciting opportunity to travel to France and stay with a host family for 20 days.  The trip was wonderful and I have many fond memories, but one of the best things I did while in France was visit the small Catholic church of Sainte Chapelle.  Sainte Chapelle is located on...

    The cold winter wind whipped flakes of snow and ice into my eyes, obscuring my vision and preventing me from seeing the trail ahead. Fortunately for me, the dog team pulling my sled knew just where to go, as we sped through the forest, whipping around the bends and bouncing over the snow-packed...

But somewhere inside that four and a half hour drive, it turned into one of the most confusing expeditions of my young, uninspired life. I say this because this...

    "Beep, Beep, Beep," my morning alarm screamed. Ah, that was a short night, I layed there and thought. It was a crisp and icy morning in the Willamette Valley. Oh the joys of hunting season! Getting up before the crack of dawn and driving up in the mountains before day break. My dad has always been...

  • A Change for Her Better Tomorrow

    When you’re a fifteen year old girl living in the U.S, you think you know how to deal with change like a chameleon knows how to deal with color. Running fashion trends and the latest Twitter update, American culture appears to be a never ending cycle of change.  Yet in retrospect, is what we...

    If seeing the Pope in the Rome airport, visiting the statue of David in Florence, and eating ice cream everyday until your stomach couldn’t take it anymore doesn’t make for the best trip ever, then I don’t know what does. A vacation isn’t just a time to get away and escape reality, it’s an...

      On December 27th 1994 I was born in Dar Es salaam,Tanzania but within a couple months I moved to the United States of America. It was until the summer of 2010 that I returned back to Tanzania; unfamiliar of the environment,social life and structure of the country. I lived my whole life in...

    My time in Vietnam has been mostly influenced by my work with my classmate Ramzi & Cole in a service learning project for a rural handicraft village.It is a typically chaotic Monday afternoon: Cole’s computer has been stolen, there is so much traffic on the streets of Hanoi that the motorcycles...
