Global Journeys – Iceland

Agnes Scott’s unique SUMMIT program, which provides a distinctive approach to a liberal arts education, prepares students to be global citizens and effective leaders through various experiential courses, activities and opportunities from the start of freshman year.

As a first year student, SUMMIT allowed me to participate in an intercultural course and embark on immersive faculty-led travel to Reykjavik, Iceland. In my preparatory course which was centered around Icelandic culture, I had the chance to study Iceland’s use of geothermal energy; the role of women in society; and the economic impacts of the 2008 Financial Crisis. Learning about the country and Icelandic society prior to my “Global Journeys” trip, provided me with the necessary context to become fully immersed in this journey abroad and significantly enhanced my understanding of our interconnected world.

LHU Women’s Lacrosse

During my time at Liverpool Hope University, I decided to join the LHU Women’s Lacrosse Team along with my two roommates, as a way to engage with the college; become further immersed in English culture; meet others; and of course, stay active. My roommates and I were welcomed with open arms and quickly became friends with our teammates. Not only did we enjoy one another’s company during weekly practices, but we supported each other during our games, and often took part in team building activities around Liverpool.

STEM Women Conference

During my time as a study abroad student at Liverpool Hope University, one of my roommates and I took up the opportunity to attend the STEM Women Conference in Manchester, England. At this event we were able to learn about different careers in STEM; listen to several executive women speak about their experiences working in the field; and network with recruiters from several STEM-focused companies including PWC, Morgan Stanley, Bloomberg, and Citrix.
