Nearly a dozen students gathered Sunday night in Moore Lounge to create maps of their study-abroad experiences, but: these were maps that relied less on cartography skills than on the memories that made their time away from campus important. They drew on their experiences in places as far-flung as Beijing, the Ukraine, and Costa Rica, and as nearby as Beloit; the maps are currently on display in the Hales Gallery in Pearsons.
The event marked the beginning of International Education Week, this year enjoying special prominence as the college celebrates 50 years of official study abroad programming. Activities like Tuesday's International Service and Career Fair and Tuesday's Making Study Abroad Affordable seminar will be useful for those who have yet to go abroad, while Wednesday's International Symposium and Ivan Stone lecture (featuring health and human rights activist Alicia Ely Yamin) will bring international perspectives back to campus.
