Ladies and gentlemen, the time you’ve been breathlessly awaiting has come! The Language Learning Center is proud to present…. (drumroll please)
The 10th anniversary publications of the Willamette World News!!!
The WWN is a blog written by Willamette international students, eager to share their stories from home and the differences they’ve been experiencing since entering the U.S.
We are proud to bring you 13 life experiences, sustainable, local, fresh, and diverse posts from around the world, and they’re all 100% Willamette! All throughout the year, you will have the chance to learn more about the international students in our own community and their views on a variety of social, cultural, and other topics.
It is with great pleasure that we introduce to you this year’s contributors. They are bringing their own perspectives and personal experiences to campus, influenced by their backgrounds as well as their journeys to WU. They are eager to share with you how they engage with new challenges!
In learning more about them, you might also learn more about yourself and your own culture, while opening your mind to the incredible patchwork of our interconnected world. Finally, we hope our contributors may spark some ideas in your mind, and encourage the growing aspiration you may have to study or travel abroad!
So, dear readers, enjoy!
Sincerely your WWN editors,
Giuliana Alfinito, Jaime Venegas, Paul Romain
