When I say I'm from Idaho, land of the potatoes, many people ask why I came
all the way to Missouri.
It wasn't for Joplin.
Sure, this area can be nice, but I don't plan on staying too long after
Like many other students, I consider Missouri Southern a stepping stone. A
stepping stone to where?
Maybe across the world.
The reason I chose to attend this college was the College's international
mission (along with the opportunity to work for The Chart). Southern has an
impressive selection of international study opportunities.
In January, the College's Institute of International Studies was given
national recognition with an award for "Internationalizing the Campus" from
the Institute of International Education.
I think it's sad that many students don't seem to appreciate the
international mission that our Southern has.
Over winter break, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime to visit Cuba
through a trip organized by the College. I learned more about the country
in one week than I ever could through classes or books. Traveling outside
the United States definitely can change a person's outlook on the world.
People who have traveled abroad seem to have an increased sensitivity to
the cultural differences and similarities throughout the world.
