The Off-Campus Study staff are always excited to welcome students back from their studies and travels off-campus. This year to welcome back the students who were off-campus in the spring and summer we hosted a wine and cheese social.
The social was a time for students to be recognized for their time away from campus, connect with their peers who were also away, and share their stories and experiences with our staff.
The event was a hit! Students pinned themselves on our Off-Campus Study map and reminisced about their time off-campus. From the staff's perspective, it was nice to see the community that off-campus study can create. We were so proud to see the young men and women these students have become after studying off-campus.
President Weinberg welcomed the students back. He commended them for their courage to step outside their comfort zone, and asked them to educate their peers with the new perspectives they gained while off-campus. Dr. Weinberg reminded the students to apply the experiences and skills they learned off-campus to their Denison education and to keep the lessons they learned with them as they move onward.
Our office cannot wait to hold more events similar to this one in the future.
