Courtney Smith, Transylvania’s director of global and intercultural engagement, has started a new pen pal program for students, who can’t travel because of the pandemic.
Now back at Transylvania, six students who recently studied abroad share their overseas experiences.
Transylvania’s Alternative Winter Break highlights the value of service in a liberal arts education — and it’s a way for students to make meaningful connections with people in another country.
Junior Grace Kim is studying in Seoul, South Korea, through the new GlobalTransy program.
Transy faculty and staff members share memories and thoughts about having lived in different countries.
Transy chemistry and psychology professors share recollections of overseas college education.
International faculty and staff recount how they navigated differences in language and culture.
“Travel is transformative. But much of its transformative power comes from those people you get to know and love.”
Transylvania students share how studying internationally has affected their perspectives on the world and on their own education.
“Now, whenever anybody on Transy’s campus asks me about studying abroad in the future, I always say the same thing: No matter where you go, you’re going to have a family.”
