When was the last time you traveled? And no, your spring trip to Florida doesn’t count …
I mean, when was the last time you went out of your comfort zone and visited a completely new place for more than just a vacation? When was the last time you examined, not just toured? For me, it’s something to travel, and I think it’s one of the biggest opportunities for me.
Today I’m going to break everything you need to know about your journey through college. First of all, I’ll cover why you have to travel through college. Then I’m debating some of the general myths about going to college. Finally, I will talk about some specific travel opportunities during college, as well as resources that you can consult to learn more about each …
So grab your suitcase, put your glasses down, and let’ s go! “We must go beyond the textbooks, go to the bypasses and in the untouched depths of wildlife, travel and explore and tell the world about the ironing of our journey.”
-John Hope Franklin.The journey gives you an education you could never get in class …
In a wise way, travelling is the difference between reading the architectural marvels of Sagrada Familia and peering in the Ava to the impossible spile. It’s the difference between seeing the video of the geological processes that created the Giant Kaouway and the marvel in its ideal columns, like the salt spray in the North Atlantic. It’s the difference between studying Spanish in a class and using it for checking in a dormitory at 3:00 in the morning, while you’re trying to decipher unfamiliar bills in your hand …
Of course, travel so much.
I hope you’re sure of the advantages (and there are still dozens of me, no doubt), so now I want to move on to some myths and the lost ideas that prevent a lot of people from going to college (or ever!) ..
“Perhaps travel cannot hinder the fanatic, but by showing that all nations cry, laugh, eat, worry and die, it may be an idea that if we try and understand each other, we can even become friends.”
Maya Angel, “There will be nothing for my journey now.”
Myth 1: Fading abroad is the only way to travel to college …
It’s completely false. As you will see below, training abroad is easy.
I think that part of this mistaken idea is that staff members who are sending colleges in many ways focus on studying opportunities abroad in promoting their schools to prospective students. These students then accept and carry such perceptions.
Myth 2: You need to leave the country ..
Just because I said that your spring trip to Florida is not considered a trip, it doesn’t mean you have to travel outside your country to have an amazing, valuable experience of travel …
One of the most memorable, spectacular trips I have ever made, was a trip to Washington, D.C., with two friends in the summer of 2016. Likewise, a weekend hike to the mountains might be.
What matters is what you have.
Mif 3: Journeys are dangerous …
Whenever I describe upcoming travel plans for friends or family, I usually find at least one person who asks, “Is it not dangerous to go to X country/place?” And here’s the thing:
However, the reality is that the location you plan to visit is likely.
If nothing else, think about it like this: the evidence is strong.
Mif 4: Travel is expensive …
It’s one of those myths that just won’t leave, and for good reason. The trip.
As I mentioned, a trip doesn’t mean that he spends a month in the French Riviera. It can be as simple (and accessible) as riding to the mountains for a few days, or just taking the train to a nearby city ..
And even if you decide to make an international trip, you can do it.
Now that we’ve gotten to the myths, let’ s get in.
When people think about traveling while they’re in college.However, the way I studied abroad is neither the only nor necessarily the best way to study abroad. For example, let us say that it is impossible to go to another country/practice for any reason (and there are many good reasons). In this case, I encourage you to consider a variety of internal options that exist to spend a semester at another college/university ..
Formally, this is “training”, not “abroad”, but benefits are similar. In my college, I had friends who spent semesters in both Washington and Chicago, Illinois, and had a wonderful, valuable experience that helped them so much.
In addition, training abroad may not be.
In many cases, training in another veil will also be cheaper (check this out.
Finally, be aware that the semester programmes are long.
My college, for example, has offered summer programmes in Italy and Greece, as well as shorter programmes in Haiti, Thailand, India and much more. If you have a major with a strict curriculum that prevents you from taking a whole semester abroad, shorter programs like this can be.
The chances that your college has an office abroad that will love to help you explore your options. At least,
If learning abroad is not working for you, you consider travel on official business. A classic example of this in America is an “alternative spring break”, where instead of getting into trouble at some passé beach, you spend a week.
My college has programs that run in Tijuana and West Virginia, and your college probably has a version of it. It is also worth looking for places like local religious organizations or other community volunteer networks, as they often organize their own travel on these lines ..
Official travel is a good chance.
One of my close friends made a semester and a summer internship in Indianapolis, Indiana, with two companies he was looking at after school. This not only gave him an idea of what it was like to work for these companies, but also gave him a taste.
Mind you, there’s plenty.
And don’t assume you have to.
4. Research assistance.
Interfellowships (but certainly not different) are research assistants at the frontier/far away. If you are looking at a career in academic circles (or just like doing research), these opportunities can be a great way to travel, learn and (often) make more money than you will be at the hour.
On the inside, I have a friend who spent the summer in L.A., studying chemistry. At the international level, I know someone who’s got it.
Internet search is certainly a good way to find these opportunities, but the best strategy is to ask the professors in your department if they hire research assistants (and if there are travel opportunities) ..
Ideally, make your question during the first two years of college, so you can have time.
In addition to training abroad and travel, there are likely trips offered by clubs and other groups of campuses. The “outdoors” club at my college has been hiking and crusades for autumn and spring breaks, for example, and with a subsidy that provides the budget of the club.
And if you are part of a club that doesn’t have a trip related to his interests,
6. Self-organized Trips.
The opportunity for self-organized trips is limited only by your time, money, ambition and imagination. You did.
Or you can use time and.
To travel alone or with friends depends on you. Both types of trips have their own merits, as I discussed in my article.
On the other hand, group trips offer less mobility than you when solo, and they also offer fewer opportunities for self-sufficiency and learning to be alone. At the end of the day, I did both, and I highly recommend you do the same.
If you consider only one thing from this article, let it be:
Rent Airbnb and spend a week living in another part of your city can be a larger adventure than behind the scenes on the other side of the world. The kayking of a local river may be.
The whole thing is to approach it.
I hope that this article gave you the inspiration and advice you need to start your journey, and I’m curious to know.
