Happy Fall... or should I say winter now! It's hard to believe that there are only three more weeks of the semester left here at Purdue; this fall semester has definitely flown by that's for sure. Between the stress of the third round of midterms, to the fun of the football and now basketball games, Purdue surely never sleeps. Students and faculty are constantly on the go, and the learning never stops. Thanksgiving break comes and goes, and suddenly it's December. The excitement of the Purdue Christmas Show, put on by the Purdue Musical Organization, Senior Day at the last football game, and the winning streak the Purdue Men's Basketball team is having thus far into the season, the strenuous, yet exciting fall semester is coming to an end. As for myself, I was recently selected to study abroad in Cartagena, Colombia during the week of Spring Break 2016 through the College of Agriculture. I am extremely excited for this amazing experience being offered to me, for it is my first time ever traveling out of the United States. While in Colombia, we will engage in cultural and historical tours and discussions, community service experiences, and interact with local businesses, industry (including tourism), healthcare facilities, faculty, and fellow students from the Universidad de Cartagena. Of course, those are just some of many activities we will be partaking and experiencing while on this week long adventure in South America. Although the fall semester is coming to a close, there is so much to look forward to next semester. I just wanted to wish all of those who applied to Purdue University this fall, the best of luck, and I hope you all hear great news on your acceptance! Happy Holidays everyone and see you all next semester!
