  • Dear Global Education Offiice,

    There is something universally appealing about a sunset. I would venture to say that I considered sunsets to be neutral, uncontroversial, indifferent. My summer in Turkey, however, established somewhat of a beautiful controversy to my sunsets.

    Having visited the city of Istanbul during the month of July,…

  • Step Back

    Dear Global Education Office,

    My favorite part of my short six weeks in Spain over the summer was our trip to Asturias and Leon.  Unlike our other excursion we took a step back and went into nature to appreciate the Spanish country side.  We rode on horseback to an…

  • Adventures in Oxford

    This summer passed by in a blur filled with ancient stone and monumental buildings. Oxford was truly an amazing place, and climbing the tower of St. Mary's provided the best view of this fantastic city. This experience has helped me appreciate the history of higher education and the…

  • Dear Global Education Office,

    This photo was taken the morning after we camped on a restricted, unrestored portion of the Great Wall near Simatai. To call getting there an adventure would be an understatement; it took an hour and a half on the subway, a two hour public bus ride, an…

  • London Calling

    As an English major and theatre fanatic, I knew London would be the perfect destination for me, but the Duke in London Drama program exceeded all of my expectations. I spent my days in magnificent theatres watching brilliant actors in truly spectacular productions, exploring and fully enjoying myself. Now,…

  • Where It All Began

    Dear Global Education Office,

    While I spent the majority of my six weeks abroad in London, my program did also take a short trip to Stratford-upon-Avon, the birthplace of William Shakespeare.  There, I spent one of my favorite days of the trip, wandering around the beautiful village…

  • Dear Global Education Office,

    The Duke in Brazil program was one of the great experiences of which I have been a part.  This is a picture of the fishing boats in the port of Belem.  If there is one image to remember, besides the faces of the people in this city,…

  • Port Alguer, by Salvador Dalí

    As part of the Duke in Spain program this past summer, we took two courses during the six weeks we stayed in Spain -one on the literature and arts of modern Spain, and another on the economic crisis. During this time, we would have more traditional…

  • Lost in China

    Dear Global Education Office, 

    Three long, hot, and occasionally polluted weeks into our Beijing summer study program, we are able to travel to LongQing Gorge about 2 hours away from Beijing's sprawling city center. This weekend excursion (conveniently arranged by our teachers, all we had to do was…

  • Swiss Bliss

    Dear Global Education Office,

    So many times I would just go into the city, walk around the lake, and admire the Swiss beauty.  The lake, the mountains, the boats, the jet all make for scenery that you can't imagine anywhere else.  There truly is a serenity that exists here…

  • Living On the Edge

    Dear Global Education Office,

    Standing on the very edge of the White Cliffs of Dover, 350 feet above the English Channel, the sound of waves crashing and seagulls shrieking, I realized how fleeting yet important this summer was. Six weeks with the Duke in Oxford program had…

    Dear Global Education Office,

    I captured this photo on a walk in Green park with some friends.  You can see Buckingham Palace, and the Victoria monument in the background.  Having so much history surrounding you at all times is truly an astounding feeling.   While studying…

  • A Mystery on Santorini

    Dear Global Education Office,

    After an hour of riding our ATVs on dirt roads, we stumbled upon an abandoned monastery near the southern tip of Santorini. The site exhibited a serene view that very few have probably seen. However, as we continued to explore, we discovered old…

    Dear Global Education Office,

    For our midterm trip, Duke Summer in China took a trip to Suzhou and Shanghai. In Suzhou, we found a hidden street full of small stores and food stalls -- easily the best snack food in China. I had a great time studying Chinese for two…

  • A Delicate Underwater Wonderland

    Dear Global Education Office,

    The Great Barrier Reef, a natural wonder of the world, is the most incredible place I have visited so far. For many years, it had been at the top of my “bucket list.” Before my Duke career began, I was a volunteer at…
