Going Abroad? Remember it’s a Global Village

Remember that scene in The Social Network when the Winklevi are rowing at Henley? And they hear that someone at Oxford has Facebook? And they get really mad because Facebook has caught on so much it jumped continents? Right. So what’s my point? Well Dee-Lite sang it best when they came at you from the “global village…in the age of communication,”‘ but my point is a little less lyrical. What is my point you ask? Yes, I’m getting to that.

Princeton in Africa Fellowships

I’d say that one of the only downsides to this job is learning about all the awesome opportunities out there that I am no longer eligible for.

I hope you can get this information out to Bucknell student body. The application deadline is approaching so […]
