Letters from Abroad

Emily Fineberg ’15, Abroad Columnist

October 3, 2013

I have a tendency to get lost. During my first or second week of classes as a freshman at Dickinson, I tried to walk from Weiss to my dorm (Longsdorff) around 9 p.m. by myself because I didn’t want to go to the Quarry; it took...

Letters from Abroad

Meri St. Jean ’15, Abroad Columnist

October 3, 2013

I’m going to be honest here; I don’t really have much to say. I love Toulouse and am so glad to be studying abroad here! And it’s not that things are boring, there’s just nothing really big for me to talk about—unless...

This weekend at the legendary Oktoberfest in Munich can only be described as insane. My first observation upon arrival at the bus station was that literally every other person was decked out in traditional Tracht. Seriously...

It’s three weeks into my study abroad in Toulouse and I’m just starting to figure out where my favorite hot spots are that can remedy a serious case of the late night munchies. I’ve found that Toulouse has a lot of Algerian...

It has been a very hectic, yet fun weekend, to say the least. I went on an excursion from Freiburg to nearby Basel, Switzerland. It still sort of blows my mind that I can get to an entirely different country in about an hour...

Letters from Abroad

Emily Fineberg ’15, Abroad Columnist

September 26, 2013

As some of you may know, I served as News editor of this very newspaper last year. I spent many hours every week nagging writers to submit their articles before Sunday at 7 p.m. So I can only imagine the reaction of the current...

Letters From Abroad: The Pyrenees

Meri St. Jean ’15, Abroad Columnist

September 19, 2013

I just spent the past few days in the most amazing place I’ve ever been. Ok, that might be a bit of an exaggeration, but the Pyrenees definitely make it to my top ten. A mountain range that spans 44,942 sq. miles, the Pyren...

Letters from Abroad: The Trust Factor

Janie Feldmann ’15, Abroad Columnist

September 19, 2013

As much as I have willed it not to, my time in Freiburg is slowly coming to an end. Though I would gladly stay here for another month (or two or three), it has been nice to reflect over the past few weeks about what I have learned...

Abroad: The American Dream in Cameroon

Kendra Haven ’14, Abroad Columnist

May 2, 2013

The other day, I showed my 20-year old host brother the inner workings of a cootie-catcher. Since arriving in Cameroon, I’ve rediscovered many of my childhood memories here; old games having somehow traveled inter-continental...
