We would like to express our thanks to everyone who came to the Gemstone Academic Affair Committee's Study-Abroad forum! Our hosts: Kelly Shih, Kevin Fries, and Christy Tsui each discussed their experiences overseas. Kelly, a peer mentor at the study abroad office, shared some of her adventures from her time spent in Chile. Christy, an active member of Maryland's alternative breaks program, discussed some of the differences within the program. Kevin shared with the forum some of the life-changing experiences he encountered through Engineers Without Borders.
