I have been making blog post every semester for the last 5 years about my international experience at not just OU but my time abroad. It is bittersweet typing this because although I will miss it; I am excited for the next chapter of my life. I loved that I was able to be part of this program because it let me continue my love for learning about different languages and communities with a degree path that was STEM related. It showed me the importance of how traveling does shape you to be a more understanding person because there is so much more to this world that the city you live in and the people you surround yourself with. I do wish covid didn’t interfere with the last 2 years but it brought a lot of knowledge that as a society we were lacking. I still think global engagement day was my favorite days within this program because not only did you get to talk nonstop about your time abroad but you learned so much from others stories. If I had one piece of advice for anyone starting this program is to talk to older members about their time abroad. I know I had a lot of information dealing with medical advice since I did fracture my foot in Arezzo. I am so happy OU even though the funds are not as much as they used to be for this program they have still made it an opportunity for incoming freshman. I know I would off been less involved on campus if it wasn’t for this. I will miss it very much but what I learned in the past 5 years will help me so much in my future and I can’t wait to continue expanding my knowledge about the global community. I would also love to come back and talk to future fellows about my last 5 years. Anyways, I am so glad I will have this to look back on in years to come.
