Hi guys - my name is Paige Alexander. I spent my Junior year in Beijing as a Middlebury in China language immersion student. I got to explore China and learn about their culture through their language, food, and people; it was difficult but rewarding. I 100% recommend going abroad as a way of not only pushing the boundaries of what you believe you can do, but also to learn about how other people in our world live. I work as a Peer Mentor at the JIC so feel free to stop by, say hi, or ask questions!
Hi everyone! My name is Julia Moroz and I am an Anthropology and Classical Studies double major. I spent my summer in Italy where I studied at an archaeological field school located in a small town called Montalto di Castro. I had the opportunity to excavate in an ancient Etruscan city called Vulci, where I learned the basics of field excavation as well as lab work. I was able to meet so many people from all over the world, with volunteers and directors coming from Portugal, Croatia and France to name a few. The volunteers were all genuinely excited to get to know and teach the American students, giving me the opportunity to learn more about their experience in the field. While it was incredible to meet new people and to learn about the history of Vulci through archaeology, excavating did require working long hours in the heat, and digging all day was sometimes exhausting but always incredibly rewarding. No matter how terrifying or difficult it may seem, I definitely recommend studying abroad, whether it be for a semester, a summer or even a year! Please feel free to stop by the JIC to ask any questions, get information or even just to say hi!
Hi! My name is Maeve, and I am an Off-Campus Study Student Ambassador for the Office of International Programs. I am a senior and American Studies-English Literature Joint Major. In the Spring 2019 semester, I studied abroad in Bath, England with the Advanced Studies in England Program. Going abroad was something I never thought I’d do and was initially very scared to go, but it was one of the most enjoyable yet challenging things I’ve ever done. I learned so much academically as well as about myself personally, and I loved being able to learn about and explore a new city. So if you ever want to learn more about studying abroad or also share a love of Jane Austen and scones, you can always stop by the JIC and chat with me!
Hi! My name is Erica Stanitski and I am a freshman at Franklin and Marshall. As of now, I have not decided my major but hope to major in Public Health. I have grown up traveling and cannot wait to take advantage of the study abroad program at F&M. My dream is to study abroad in Switzerland or Spain during my junior year. This would allow me to meet new people, learn about different cultures, and gain knowledge about what is happening around the globe! On campus, I am involved in Hillel and currently sit on the Tzedek Committee. I am also planning on getting my Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) license this summer and am an active member of the F&M EMS program.
