About Our Blog

Mission & Vision

To provide a platform for Amherst students to reflect upon their experiences abroad—while they’re away, once they’ve returned to Amherst, and long after they’ve graduated—and to share their stories and reflections with the larger Amherst community and beyond.

This blog is part of our vision for the future.
