Student Voices From Around the Globe

August 26, 2014

The Columbia students at right have much to say and remember about this summer, and it was much more than just a vacation.

Twelve first-year students from Columbia College participated in the inaugural Presidential Global Fellows Program at various places around the world.

Another 14 students traveled abroad as part of the Global Scholars Program titled Contemporary Cities of Eurasia – Berlin, Moscow, Ulan Bator, and Beijing.

Still more students spent time in Amman and Mumbai in the Summer Ecosystem Experience for Undergraduates Program. A sampling of their experiences in their own words are linked at right.

Most of the students received guidance and assistance from one or more of Columbia's eight Global Centers.
