Scholar Abroad Presentations

     Chatham Scholars have gotten an early start this spring semester. Although only week two of the new semester, first year scholars Phoebe Armstrong and Rosemary Davies presented on study abroad experiences. The presentations, which occurred on Tuesday, January 15th at Chatham University, piqued the interest of fellow scholars.
Armstrong studied abroad in both Argentina and Germany, while Davies took part in an Arctic expedition. During her time abroad, Armstrong became fluent in German, and delved deep into the culture of both Argentina and Germany. Davies, meanwhile, had the opportunity to see the unique variety of animals and fish that inhabit the Arctic, and was especially fascinated by diatoms, a type of algae found in Arctic sea ice. The range of their experiences provided varied lenses through which fellow scholars could see the abroad trips of their peers, as well as consider their own potential future trips.
