The Fall 2014 Study Abrog Collection

Around a week ago, I sent out an SOS for study abroad blogs (read: abrogs) from the hundreds of students hanging out overseas this semester. This week, there are five awesome submissions to distract you from studying for your midterms. Click at your own risk, because I can’t promise you’ll emerge from the abrog vortex […]

The Fall 2013 Study Abrog Collection

Super awkward misunderstandings, beautiful sunsets, getting lost, delicious food, weird food, really weird food, astounding historical sites, new friends, new language, cathedrals/temples/churches/mosques, legally drinking (and then sadly returning home to realize you’re still 20….), self exploration, art, culture, life outside the Wes bubble. Dear Wesleyan friends, it’s time now to take a break from your […]

Abroad This Spring? Submit Your Abrog

Sunny in Sydney? Balmy in Barcelona? Death in Venice?

This Thanksgiving, take some time out of your gluttony to remember the expatriates who can’t sit down to their tables stateside. To abroad students, today is a whirl of homesickness, isolation, and hunger pangs.

Help Us Help You Help Us Learn about the World

Your best excuse for not seeing Kitty Pryde tonight? You’re on a study abroad program! (Right?) While the Wesleyan campus is busy not auditioning for New Teen Force, muscling each other out of the Danny Brown line, and pairing voyeurism with disorderly conduct, you study abroad kids are out discovering the world beyond our red-and-black-colored […]

Notes from the Study Abroadosphere

“I’ve met people from all over: a guy from Penn State, these two Sig Ep brothers from the University of Oregon, and some really cool people from Clemson,” said Blevins, a political-science major who is taking eight credits at the Universidad de Sevilla.” Over 170 juniors are studying abroad right now. That’s X% percent of […]
