The Fried Center for Global Engagement aims to integrate the perspective of international students and scholars into the campus community, to provide off-campus study opportunities for all students, and to stimulate conversation of cross cultural and global issues, all of which contribute to the internationalization of Hope’s campus. This tradition of an international campus began with Hope’s first graduating class of 1879, which was one-third Japanese.

Are you ready to join in the tradition?

Settling In When Far Outside Your Comfort Zone

Don’t get me wrong, traveling or living away from home is a blessing. But one of the many reasons traveling is good for the soul is because it can be, well, uncomfortable. When my family left me to fend for myself in D.C., shortly after this photo was snapped, I wasn’t sure where to go. […]

A Beginner’s Guide to Sevilla

Reflections from a hobbit (at heart)

Specifically, pre-dwarven company Bilbo Baggins; the Bilbo Baggins who sits in his aesthetically-pleasing hobbit hole, drinking tea, and by firelight reading in a plush armchair. Maybe […]

Although I don’t speak much Spanish, I have fully immersed myself into Dominican culture by living with a host family and doing everything I can to be in the community. From the rhythmic music and dancing to the rich […]

Squinting out my window into a powerful gray sky, and listening to the harsh calls of seagulls reminded me: oh yeah, I’m in Dublin. There are far more seagulls in Dublin than I expected, as I didn’t even think there would […]
