So I recently volunteered to help at the study abroad fair, which was very interesting. I may or may not have decided to help to fulfill my PITF service requirement, but that’s beside the point.
I actually enjoyed myself much more than I thought I would, despite the fact that it was about 100 degrees outside, because I got to do my two favorite things: talk to people and shamelessly plug Study Abroad. For about half the time I talked to people who came to the Europe tent, since I went to Italy and the UK. I spent the rest of the time at the question booth, giving out prizes to the people who could answer random questions about different parts of the world. I also ran into the professor who taught my Organic Chemistry class in Arezzo, and he remembered me! Which is good since I plan to ask him for a reference for my Fulbright application.
All in all it was a fun event. I just hope some of those people I talked to will actually take the plunge and go.
