McKenna’s Story – Argentina & Antarctica, J-Term
Communication (Anthropology minor) – Class of 2019

What she would like other students to know:
Studying away was in important part of finding what I wanted to do with my life. We always talk about vocation but you can’t truly find it until you explore yourself and learn what you do and don’t like.

A piece of advice to future study away students:
Savor every moment by taking time to journal. Months or years after your travels you won’t remember that one restaurant you loved or the name of a building you liked. So take time every night to right down everything about the day.

What surprised her about studying away:
I was surprised at how close a group of strangers could get in one month by traveling together.
