Commencement 2019

News Briefs


From getting a first glimpse of the Arco de Trunfo in Barcelona to filling a water bottle at one of Rome's 2,500 public water fountains, the day-to-day moments of students studying abroad add up to transformational experiences and memories that last a life time. As a part of Virginia Wesleyan's Study Away Program, students share these moments by keeping blogs about their trips. They post pictures and write about their experiences, concerns, and goals throughout their time abroad. Students keeping blogs during the current semester include Clarity Cotman '16, Joshua Ford '16, Daniel Mulford '16, Hannah Blanco '16, Austin VonVille '16, Joshua Simmons '16, Nicole Johnson '17, Katie Stefano '16, Stephanie Williams '16, Ryan Breen '16, and Alexis Turner-Lafving '16. The Study Away Program at Virginia Wesleyan College offers a wide variety of semester and year-long study away opportunities as well as short-term travel programs during Winter Session or summer. Those involved in the Study Away Program are eligible for the College's Global Scholars Program. For more information, contact Lena Johnson, Director of the Study Away Program, at or 757.455.3116.
