Off to Geneva!

By: Kyle Villemain

I’m off to Geneva in less than four hours. I’ve been a quite infrequent blogger these first two months of summer but plan to change that as I start to ramp up my summer. Thus far, I’ve spent my days planning. Doing some planning, having some meetings and then doing some more planning. Most of … Continued

A New Home Away from Home

By: Sarah MacLean

My time abroad can’t be considered a competition between the various countries of South America, but in just a few days I’ve realized that my month in Peru is going to rival my four months in Chile in terms of challenge and adventure.  I’ve only been in Cusco for a few days, but I already … Continued

Welcome to Lima!

By: Sarah MacLean

Greetings from Lima, Peru!  Well, technically just above Lima on my flight to Cuzco.  It’s been great to be back in Peru after being here for a few weeks of volunteering three years ago.  I just spent the weekend exploring the capital city, and now I’m looking forward to a great three weeks in the second-largest … Continued

final post

By: Paige Holmes

There are 3 weeks left until graduation and at this point, I have just given up and let my emotions run their course. A few days ago, I bawled in front of my laptop while writing my last paper for a class. Who ever thought I would cry about that?! What is wrong with me?! … Continued

questioning, reflecting, and "being enough"

By: Emma DeWitt

When I look out my window in Brighton there are the rolling green hills I described in my introductory blog entry.
