First Year Fridays and...MOROCCO!

Hey readers!

So I'm sitting in the computer lab in Jeanmarie 288 (my favorite study spot, as many of you might know), finally getting to another blog post--it's been a while!

I've been quite busy with working in Admissions during the week and having shenanigans with my buddies on weekends. My Vermont summer is just flying by! Despite the rain, I've had tons of fun, and I'm glad I chose to stay here for the summer. It's nice to be able to spend some extra time at Saint Mike's, especially since I won't be here come Spring 2014.

"Hold up...what?"

Yeah, you read it right. I will only be spending the fall term of this year in Vermont. Fear not, readers, I will be back for my whole senior year, and I will also be blogging even during my absence from SMC. And you'll probably want to keep reading while I'm away, because I'll be blogging to you from MOROCCO!

That's right, I've been accepted to the SIT Study Abroad program in Rabat! I am SO stoked. While I'm there, I'll be doing research and working with Round Earth Media to create a journalistic piece, either in print or multimedia. And I'm staying with a host family. And taking classes. Oh, and learning Arabic.

Basically, my life is the best ever. Except for that I'm also slightly terrified. But I think it's healthy to be a little nervous! After all, Saint Mike's is my home away from home, and now I will have to create a new home away from home...away from home (did ya follow that?)

Anyway, I could talk about all of the emotions I have about it all day, but I won't. All I can say is that I'm so glad the application process and waiting period is over. It's like a weight off my shoulders! I have a destination, and nothing can stop me now. :)

So that was the big news, but I have something else for you too! As an Admissions intern, I get to do some pretty fun stuff, including giving tours every day. However, I have been working with Darcy and Sarah, the other two students in my office, and we've teamed up with Marketing interns Dom and Kathryn to create a summer video series! It's called First Year Fridays, and it's a continuation of the series that was filmed last summer. These informational videos are made specifically with incoming first-year students in mind so that we can tell you useful things about living at Saint Mike's and the opportunities that are offered in the Burlington area. If you want to learn more about the life of your average SMC student, definitely check out these videos, as well as last year's ones too! You can find them all on the SMC Youtube channel.

Here's the latest video (sorry, Blogger is having some trouble letting me embed videos today):

I hope you're all having a great summer. See you soon!
