As our students prepare to leave for a far-off land (and some of you have already reached your exotic destination), our excitement here at the office is growing. However, there is quite a bit of jealousy thrown into the mix as well. We wish we were going, too. Since we are stuck here in landlocked Denver (despite all the wishing, which unfortunately only gets you somewhere in fairy-land), we would like to live vicariously through you, and look forward to hearing about your adventures abroad. Welcome to our blog, and your blog, a community just for DU students abroad to share their thoughts and experiences with our office, your friends, and your family. This blog is meant to help you keep in touch with those back home and those who are also studying abroad.
