Independent Minds, Working Together

Major: International Relations

ACM Pune, India (Fall 2012)

My off-campus study in Pune, India was one of my most profound and mind-opening experiences. I had the opportunity to become immersed in the local culture through a home-stay and intensive language courses. As an International Relations major, off-campus study represented an integral part of the inter-disciplinary curriculum, however it has shaped my interests and aspirations in areas that go far beyond my major. The impact my off-campus study had on my experience at the College of Wooster is a primary reason why I decided to join the GET. I look forward to using my perspectives to help fellow students considering off-campus study.
