Graduate Students Share Their Stories

Many NAU graduate students study and/or do research abroad: experiences that can be exhilarating, scary, humbling, empowering, and teach you an amazing amount not only about your discipline, but also about America and the global community we live in—and about yourself.

Hearing about those experiences can teach the rest of us something, too.

The Graduate College encourages you to share these international (or domestic cross-cultural) learning experiences with your fellow grad students. Please contact us if you would like to write about your experience for the newsletter. Format and length are entirely negotiable.
