A New Semester!

Hello everyone! Welcome back!

I had a lovely winter break and hope that you all did as well. Us students arrived back on campus last week, and now that I am finally unpacked and settled in a little, I finally had the time to write this post. I have some super exciting things coming up this semester on the blog! I can't wait to share them with you! 

a) I am going to do a little FAQ on financial aid at Franklin 

b) I am collaborating with several other Franklin students on a videography project entitled "Faces of Franklin" that showcases a diverse array of Franklin students and Franklin experiences

c) I am stoked for my next academic travel to... (drum roll please) .... BOTSWANA! You heard that right, I will be spending two weeks in sub-saharan Africa come this March. We will mainly be in Botswana, but also Zimbabwe and South Africa, studying environmental conservation while camping in the wilderness. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I will definitely write another post soon about all I am doing academically to prepare for this trip. 

d) I will also be featuring a variety of Franklin clubs + programs students are involved in

e) Look out for some alumni spotlights 

f) Not to mention some exciting campus news to come this spring... and I will just leave you with that mysterious tidbit for now  ;)

g) Plus, a post about how attending Franklin has changed me! 

It is going to be a busy semester, but I feel really great about it! Once again I am going to try and be posting weekly. As always, thanks for reading along and I hope you are looking forward to a new semester of tales here on the blog too! 

PS I snapped this picture of the Swiss Alps as I was flying out in December, aren't they GORGEOUS?
