Field Experiences & Study Abroad, Fall 2014

Check out the newest edition of leaflets from our student travels.  In this series, students traveled throughout the world from China to Ecuador and throughout the entire world!  This is one of my favorite things about GS3010–the work that the students create is amazing.  Not only that, I love reading through all of the responses that students share.  There are some really valuable advice and tips on traveling.  Check out their videos and leaflets below.
