My Favorite Thing About School: Rewarding & Educational Trips

Welcome back, Current Students!  Welcome, New Students! 

I am so happy to be back to school and begin blogging again. I especially appreciate the opportunity to share about my experiences and interests with you all. First and foremost, I am a Master of Public Health (MPH) student with University of Maryland, College Park (UMCP) at the Universities at Shady Grove (USG). After that, you will come to know me as a traveler and community service enthusiast. I’m looking forward to what this school year will have in store for me!

I’m sure you all are as excited as I am about this new school year. New school years always feels like the beginning of the next chapter of your life, don’t they?

I’m starting my new school year by thinking about my upcoming school breaks already. Since I love to travel and since this is my last year of graduate school, I want to go on as many educational and rewarding trips as I can before I graduate. I really want to share these opportunities with you too, especially if you are a UMCP student!

I just applied for Alternative Breaks (AB) last week for Winter Break, and I am in the process of applying for a Short Term Study Abroad (SA) trip for Spring Break. Being at USG sometimes makes it hard to keep in touch with our home campuses, but by being a part of SA and AB programs in the past, it has brought me so much closer. Check out my trips to the Bahamas and Guatemala from previous years. I absolutely loved it, and that is why my personal mission at USG is to help bring the campuses together by promoting about events that USG students can take part in with their home campuses.

I am hosting an informational event on Short Term Study Abroad and Alternative Breaks this coming Wednesday (Sep 21, 2016). If you’re a UMCP student and if you’re interested, swing by! Please see the flyer below for more information.
