From the writers:

“Ladies and Gentlemen welcome on board your flight to your destination. Buckle Up, sit back, and enjoy your journey to a new experience.”

Traveling is one of the most exciting things an individual can take part in. Meeting new people, engaging in a new culture, and taking in a different environment. Many people travel just for fun, but when you are younger and a student, traveling is a learning experience, it is studying abroad. Schools across the globe offer this opportunity to their students and here at Howard it is highly valued.  The Ralph J. Bunche International Affairs Center’s Student Ambassadors are determined to attract more students to studying abroad as well as informing the surrounding community about the different cultures and experiences that come with traveling. Specifically here we will be using writing as a way to connect to you through: travel tips, cultural explorations, student alumni and more. Now before your flight takes off, take a couple of steps back and enjoy your pre-departure exploration. Here are some of  the writers who will make your journey informative and a little bit easier. We cannot wait to bring you a wide range of articles and do not hesitate to send in requests. We – the writing team – want to bring you as much information as possible, so stay tuned!
