BLOG: MOUNT HOLYOKE COLLEGE STUDENTS WRITE ABOUT SUMMER ABROAD
This summer, several Mount Holyoke College students are participating in academic exchange programs abroad and are blogging about their experiences from all corners of the world – from Lima, to Venice, to Santiago, to Brussels. Read about how a Chinese student faces challenges with children’s welfare policy in Dakar, how a Vietnamese student integrates media and economics in Shanghai, and how a Korean-Australian attempts to learn Chinese in Beijing. These students’ summer travels reveal that direct interaction with diverse communities can be an important part of the overall educational experience.
