Three more hours until giving day ends! Encourage your friends and family to donate! Here’s a quote from Jeremiah Grant, a recipient of the OCOF fund who studied abroad in Casa Battlo in Barcelona. "Investing in experiences, particularly travel abroad, is one of the most enriching tasks we can engage in as human beings seeking to become more interconnected." #studyabroad#cornell#givingday#student
Pancho and me at “The Ferryman” tonight. I met Pancho his first semester at USC when he enrolled in my intro to American Literature course a few years ago. Now he’s studying in London for his junior year abroad. As his mentor, I wanted to treat him to a dynamic and exciting theatrical experience that was also great literature. This was my second time with the play and seeing it again only confirmed my sense of its importance. (It moves to Broadway next season.) Pancho and I couldn’t stop talking about it after the show, and I couldn’t stop talking about him. He’s taking full advantage of all that London offers. I’m so proud of him—we are both first generations to go to college. Nothing is taken for granted. Thrilling to see him thriving in London. ——
