Study Abroad Update

I’ve actually needed to write this post for a while now. Nobody really ever asked about it, so I didn’t feel a particular need to write it.

And there’s the fact that I’m still in Colorado, so it should go without saying that I never did study abroad.

But let me back up a bit.

I did a lot of investigating, but things really didn’t fall into place the way I wanted them to. This year has been a rather vigorous year and I ended up deciding around November of 2007 that it made more sense to stay at Mines then study abroad.

However, I have not given up on my dream. At the very least, I will spend some time abroad. However, I am also hoping to work abroad as well, using three day weekends to purchase preciously cheap tickets from local airlines.

Insert cheesy joke about studying several broads instead of just one here.

  1. Andrew. Thanks for the update. There are other ways to live abroad. May I suggest the following: http://www.icye.org/ I went to Finland with this organization when I was 19/20. They went bankrupt here in the US, but another organization is now working with ICYE in the Boston area. I’m sorry, I don’t remember their name. ICYE can place you in over 30 different countries doing voluntary service. Since it’s an international organization, you’d be placed in a country with other young adults from various parts of the world. During your year these people are your support base. You have an established organization helping you and that’s a very good thing. Check it out.
