Travel School: The Study Abroad Experience

Last year I stumbled upon a travel radio show that soon became my internship. (Fordham sends out a weekly email with tons of internship opportunities- luckily, I got the fun one.) I've since worked for Let's Travel! to improve the social network, publish the newsletter, and help with the show. Over the summer, I came up with the idea to produce a show that marries travel and education. After meeting study abroad students, doing some research, and writing a script, it finally happened!

as most college students spent the afternoon sitting in classes, eating in the caf, and studying hard, I spent the afternoon hosting a radio show that I produced.
Take a look-- or a listen:

I am not a communications major, but I am in love.


  1. Dear Gina,

    Nice podcast! I had a 'life-altering' experience from studying abroad with Syracuse University many years ago. My junior semester abroad in Florence, Italy gave me a perspective, knowledge, and exposure to an amazing life style, language, and culture which I thoroughly embraced and use for my work to this day! Italian culture became an integral part of my life. Even now, people still think I am Italian.

  2. Linda,
    Thank you.
    Syracuse made the US News Best Colleges: Study Abroad list in 2010-- what a great university to have studied with! And, what a beautiful place to have studied! (I'm dying to go to Italy, whether it's for study abroad, internship or just travel.) It seems like study abroad has grown since "many years ago," but definitely for the better.

  3. Hah. Isn't that funny, I had a radio show when I was in college as well. Go Gina Go!
