The SNC Study Abroad blog, Global Daze. Local Knights., began during the Fall 2011 semester with 68 students. The students received a stipend to offset the expensive costs of traveling abroad. In turn, the students were required to submit at least four blog posts during their semester abroad. We outlined a variety of topics (see below), as to not receive post after post about the students’ travels.
Follow the (New) Tradition
During your semester abroad, we strongly encourage you to follow the new tradition of submitting blog posts from abroad. There’s no need to write a long, academic essay. Keep your reflections brief, fresh, and engaging. Add a few pictures, too!
