WOW! It's a Powwow!

This weekends international students studied Native American culture and were in the heart of a Powwow festival.

"It was my first day in the Unites States, and I was surprised how American culture is interesting and colorful. Powwow opened for me a different side of the country with its own style of dancing, songs and clothes. It inspired me to understand the culture and history deeply." - Pit from Germany

"Pow Wow! Something that changed my view about America in few hours! Till now I was thinking America is all about dressed up people going to work, students rushing towards their classrooms! Everyone living the same busy life!! But this event was something totally different! Something filled with rich American History! People wearing their own cultural dresses, so colorful! They have their own anthems and their own special dance!" - Nida from Pakistan

Not to brag or anything, but today in Orvieto it was 63 degrees and the sun was shining. It was pretty much how a spring day in March is supposed to feel (take notes North Dakota).

We left Florence this morning for Roma, but we stopped in Orvieto first. The old part of the city sits on a cliff and we had to take a special car up to the top. For comparisons sake, it was like riding a rollercoaster up, but instead of plummeting toward the earth at the top, we stopped and got out on flat ground. At the top we got to look out over the surrounding lush green grass and rolling hills.

We then hiked it up some more hills and got to their cathedral. Turns out they were filming some sort of documentary on Orvieto today so there were some people dressed up in medieval costumes and they had brought back a statue to the church that they had moved to better protect it.

Despite the production, Orvieto is actually one of the less touristy places we have visited. They have a few things, like their church, a cave, and an underground labyrinth, but overall the tourism fasçade hasn't touched it too dramatically.

The caves that we visited were located underneath a restaurant and were created by the Etruscans in 6th century B.C. for multiple purposes. A few were for creating pottery, some for getting rid of garbage, one well (the Pope also hid there for a while when he thought he was in danger), and a tomb. The best part however was the guy that ran it. He was the CUTEST little old man. He didnt speak a word of English, but afterwards he pulled us into the restaurant and showed us a hole covered by plexiglass over the cave. He made us all stand and jump on it and then he would laugh. Ugh, can I just bring him home as a souvenir?

Following the caves we went to the labyrinth. The woman who gave us the tour was the daughter of the man who found it in the 80s when he was replacing the floor of his restaurant. Apparently these tunnels run underneath all of Orvieto, but they've only cleared some of them. The tunnels were used as rainwater cisterns, grain silos, and wells. At the deepest part we were about 70 ft below the streets of Orvieto. A 250,000 year old plant fossil lies down there, petrified from the eruption of the ancient volcano that used to sit where the Bolsena Lake does now.

Orvieto turned out to be an interesting stop since we got to see things much different from everything else we've seen so far.

Now for our next stop: Roma. We'll have a day there, a day in Pompeii, and another day in Rome. Saved the best for last obviously.

Ciao,
Hailey Entze

Testimonial by Aasma Jabin
Placement: Dickinson State University

“Life gives a chance to everyone and you will get your chance one day. Just make the most out of it.”

My mother said these lines to me when I received my interview call for Undergraduate exchange program. Living on my own and exploring a new culture was my dream since childhood and now I am one of those lucky ones who got their chance to live it!

My journey started with the selection call from UGRAD and that was the best moment of my life, indeed. I went to Islamabad for my Pre-departure orientation and I met my UGRAD family for the first time. I was happy as well as scared because it was my first time outside Pakistan. With a lot of excitement and fear, I landed in Washington, DC and got a warm welcome from IREX.

The first thing I learned about American people: their punctuality. They are value time like money. They arrive punctually and expect you to do the same. We got a chance to know our Advisors and they helped us to overcome our cultural shock. Then I went on to my university (Dickinson State University). My host advisor, Wynter Miller, kindly picked us up from the regional airport on the hottest day in North Dakota.

Despite all the exposure to pop culture on TV American culture was a still a revelation for me. America is not one but a mixture of diverse cultures. I loved some of Americans habits. Americans are very tolerant and open to other cultures. They respect personal space and give you privacy. I liked the way American teachers and administration treat their students and their addressing style is highly unique.

As a fan of the book series of Harry Potter and the TV series Friends, it was my dream to see the Hogwarts Castle and the Friends Apartment. My day at universal Studios was the best day in my entire exchange. From Golden Gate Bridge to Niagara Falls, every single experience was memorable. During my 4 months stay at USA, I travelled more than 15 states and almost 30 cities. I met people from different parts of the world and got a chance to know their languages, customs, religions and cultures. Having all my travelling dream realized was absolutely magical.

Congratulations to our international students who graduated this past Friday!

Congratulations to our international students who graduated this past Friday!

Every year, students walk across a stage to receive a diploma, earning the title of “graduate.” Although most are ecstatic to finally have it in their hands, many find the celebration bitter-sweet. Who knew it would be so hard saying goodbye? http://bit.ly/2LnePdp #discoverdsu
