Hi! I'm Sam Carpentiere and I'm a Public Relations major and International Relations minor. This fall, I will be studying at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Australia. While I have traveled outside of the country a few times, I have never been abroad for more than a few weeks, and I have most certainly never been on the other side of the world. I'm so excited to have this opportunity and equally excited to share my journey with you!
Hey friends, it’s yah girl, Hannah – amateur baker, closet contortionist, and self-taught ukuleleist. As a self-identified language nerd, officially majoring in Spanish and International Studies at SU, I also study Chinese for the thrill with a minor in both Applied Linguistics and Italian to keep things interesting.
Do you love red meat? Or tango? Or appreciate self-deprecating humor? Then catch me eating, adventuring, and loving life in Buenos Aires, Argentina and trying my hardest not to accidentally gain 20lbs in the process. Website: houtzh.wixsite.com/happytobehere
Hello! My name is Johanna Kantz and I am a junior. I am a Biology major with a Theatre minor. I will be studying at NUI: Galway in Galway, Ireland for the Fall Semester. I am very excited to study abroad because I have traveled abroad before, but this will be the longest I have ever been in a foreign country. I am also excited to be able to take classes that I wouldn’t have the opportunity to take here since they are culture specific to Ireland. I am most excited about being able to meet new people and learning about their day-to-day lives. I can’t wait to be able to share my experience with everyone else! Website:the-galwaygal.tumblr.com/
Well hello there! I’m not sure how you stumbled upon my GO blogger page, but if you decide to stay you’re in for a treat. My name is Rayanna Townsend, and I am a senior International Studies major with a focus on Comparative Cultures. I was born and raised (for the most part) in Coatesville, Pennsylvania. It’s fine if you’ve never heard of it, most people haven’t, but it’s about an hour outside of Philly, just for reference sake. I chose to travel to Tokyo, Japan for a semester because Asian culture is vastly different from American culture, and if you couldn’t tell by my major, I find culture to be fascinating and I’m excited to be taken out of my comfort zone! You probably know that Susquehanna University doesn’t offer Japanese language classes, so if you’re into 21-year old girls stumbling over their self-taught broken Japanese, you’ve come to the right place!

Hello! My name is Daniel Yim and I am a Junior at Susquehanna University where I am a Business Administration Major pursuing a Data Science and Analytics Minor. During the Fall 2018 Semester, I will be studying abroad at Senshu University in Tokyo, Japan where I will be participating in the BCL program (Survey of Japanese Business, Survey of Japanese Culture & History, and Japanese Language courses). No SU student has gone on this program for over nine years and I’m excited to be the first one to write about my adventures at Senshu University. In addition to exploring the wonderful culture, tradition, and technologically advanced nation of Japan.
My name is Zach Wright and I am a junior Psychology major at Susquehanna University. I will be spending the fall 2018 semester in Cape Town, South Africa. I have traveled before, but only with family. I saw going to a different country without anyone I know for five months as a challenge for myself and decided to put my reservations aside and go for it. I enjoy playing video games, basketball, hanging out with friends, and listening to music, among other things. I am excited to see what is in store for me this semester!
Hello! I'm a Photography and Art History double major currently studying in Florence, Italy. My experiences here include a performance art class, art history lectures in Rome and Bologna, and a great deal of confusion (I still don't know where to buy dish soap). Needless to say, attending Studio Arts College Internationalwas an easy choice and I'm so honored for the opportunity to photograph Florence. Stick around to hear my endless excitement and growth while photographing the birth place of Pinocchio, the piano, and a couple of rad Renaissance guys!

Hello all! Explore my page to read about the excitement and anxiety ridden adventures of me, Jay, as I explore and learn within Liverpool, England. As a Creative Writing and Editing/Publishing major with a broadcasting minor at SU, I am looking forward to reflecting and sharing my trip with you as I hear the music, wander the city, and take classes in England!
I'll be looking for mouth-watering food, gut-busting people, and the answers to the universe while trying to challenge and better myself. My writing will attempt to capture the adventures (The Beatles, anyone?) and answer the questions (how to choose an international phone??), so stay tuned!
