SPRING 2018

ELLEN

My name is Ellen, and I’m a born and raised southerner with a vagabond heart. I’m a second year European History major with a minor in Italian at Ole Miss, and this is my first time abroad! I’m so excited to be spending this term in England, aka the country I’ve wanted to visit for as long as I can remember, and I can’t wait to share my adventures with everyone!

JULIA

Hello! My name is Julia and I’m a sophomore majoring in Psychology and minoring in Art History. I’m studying at the University of Reading in Reading, England, and this is actually my first time to go abroad! In my free time, I’m also a painter so I’m most excited to visit the many art museums in London and mainland Europe to see some of my favorite masterpieces in person. I can’t wait to share my journey with you this semester. Cheers!

LAURA

Hello, fellow Rebels! My name is Laura Taylor and I’m a junior studying Public Policy Leadership and Intelligence and Security Studies. I’m currently a student on the Spring 2018 Semester at Sea Voyage sailing to Hawaii, United States, Japan, China, Việt Nam, Myanmar (Burma), India, Mauritius, South Africa, Ghana, Morocco, and Germany. I’ve always felt like the most meaningful moments in my education have come from hands-on and experiential learning so I thought that studying abroad would be the perfect way for me to apply real-world knowledge to the lectures and readings from the classroom. I couldn’t pick which city I wanted to move to so I decided to take a full lap around the world! I’m hoping this experience will better my understanding of foreign relations and generate a deeper love for differences – an overall appreciation for the culture of so many places around the world. Here’s to a semester of living the Suite Life on Deck, bon voyage!

I am part of our very own Chinese Flagship, as well as the Center for Manufacturing Excellence. I am studying Chinese and Engineering here in China at Harbin Institute of Technology, and I hope that this time abroad will help me broaden my horizons, as well as take me out of my comfort zone. I look forward to sharing my wild stories and misadventures of my travels within the “Middle Kingdom” with you all!
