Your time with Princeton and beyond will make you a more independent, competent, and worldly person, one whose perspective is much broader than the rolling hills of Appalachian Kentucky. Your Spanish will finally improve, and you will meet some of the most interesting and passionate people in your life along the way. And you will be able to see how your life changes and grows, from the small step to study abroad in Barcelona to the large leap moving to San Jose for a year.
The 9th annual International Eye Photo Contest is now open! All Princeton undergraduates who have studied, worked, volunteered, or done research abroad in the past year are eligible to enter. The deadline for submissions is November 15, 2016 at 5 p.m.
We are looking forward to your arrival on campus, but don’t get too comfortable! There are so many international opportunities awaiting you. Our hope is that at least once during your Princeton experience you will pack your bags, leave the country, and explore the world beyond the FitzRandolph Gate.
I couldn’t have chosen a more tumultuous time to start at a newspaper – my first day of work was the Monday after the Brexit vote and also the day after Spain’s second inconclusive elections of the year. I went from not knowing a single thing about Spain’s political situation to complaining with coworkers about the negotiation gridlock and the crisscrossing rivalries between the four major political parties.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my internship, which has allowed me to improve my Portuguese while learning about Rocinha and the historical, economic, and political context surrounding Rio’s favelas. Best of all, my internship has given me the opportunity to collaborate with and learn from some of the smartest, friendliest people I have had the privilege of knowing.
