🎓SENIOR SPOTLIGHT: Our student assistant Anjali will be graduating this spring. Anjali has worked in our office for 3 years and been on 4️⃣ study abroad programs, including Nova Scotia, England, Costa Rica, and Italy. She’s the definition of an adventurer & always has a smile on her face. Anjali will be graduating with her B.S. in Biology & a minor in Business. We are so excited to see all the amazing things Anjali accomplishes, but will miss her dearly. Congrats Anjali! 🎓

Meet our new Study Abroad Advisor: Judy Kyrkos 👋🏼
.
Hey Jags! I’m so excited to be apart of #JagNation here in the study abroad office as your advisor. Before coming to AU, I lived and worked in Rome, Italy in Student Affairs and Res Life. While I was there, I had the opportunity to travel to over 25 countries. My parents are both flight attendants, so the love for travel is in my blood. My favorite travel destinations include the Amalfi Coast (🇮🇹), London (🇬🇧), and the Thermal Baths in Budapest (🇭🇺). I’m excited to help you plan your next travel adventure once our routines go back to normal. In the meantime, reach out via email at [email protected] with any questions or travel inspiration!

Following guidance from the @statedept and @cdcgov, along with @aug_university temporary suspension of in person instruction, all Spring and Summer 2019-2020 study abroad/away programs are canceled. We know this news is highly disappointing but the safety and health of our students is our top priority. As we navigate the uncertainty and disappointment, remember that all of us in the Study Abroad Department have your best interests at heart 💙🐾. Students are encouraged to contact us via email or phone with any further questions.

Our Spring Jamaica OT students are hard at work and enjoying each moment of their program thus far. This trip is dedicated to Caroline Biddy (#kindnessforcaroline).

Follow along through their page for more posts about their incredible journey: Augusta University Jamaica Occupational Therapy Team Updates

Day 2: Seven years ago a group of students and I came to Jamaica to explore the potential of international fieldwork. 7 years, 14 trips and nearly 200 OT students later.... here we are- loving every minute of this!!!! One of those original students was Danielle Biddy who took a leap of faith and came to Jamaica with me!

Danielle and her husband had a beautiful baby girl on March 9, 2019. Baby Caroline lived 3 short months but during that time she touched so many lives. To honor her on first birthday Danielle and Matt have asked for people to complete acts of kindness.

All of the acts of love and kindness this entire week while we are at MSC will be in honor of Caroline Biddy. #kindnessforcaroline. And let me tell you- there is a LOT of love going on here!

Today we did take the residents to the grocery store to purchase all the times for cooking groups for the week then a special lunch out at KFC!

A common misconception – if you’re American, the U.S. embassy can get you out of jail if you are arrested overseas. Don’t spend your spring break in a foreign jail!
