Introducing The Planned Happenstance Project.
Welcome back to a new semester Marauders! I’m excited to share some news about a project I got to work on last term as a Student Success Leader at the Student Success Centre. Working with a team of other students under the supervision of Kerri Latham, the undergraduate career counsellor, we gathered stories related to the academic and career journeys of McMaster undergraduate students from across campus.
What I Learned While Studying Abroad
Upon returning from a 5-month semester abroad in beautiful Switzerland at Zurich University of Applied Sciences, it is only sinking in now how many incredible experiences I had while living abroad. I find it ironic that it was a semester to “study” abroad but most of my learnings came from outside of the classroom. The term “study abroad”, I believe, is really about self-discovery and embracing new cultures.
