Happy Spring! The Turkey Global Field Course is back!


Happy Spring to all our students.  Over the winter break, I had the privilege of going on one of our Eastern Global Field Courses, accompanying two history professors and 15 Eastern students to Turkey.  What an amazing adventure we had!  We visited several of the many archeological sites in Turkey and saw amazing buildings in Istanbul (the former Constantinople).  Ephesus in Western Turkey is a well-preserved site that was once the capital of the Roman Empire.  Our tour guide, Alkan, made the history of Turkey and present-day culture of Turkey come alive for all of us.


As part of your college career at Eastern, if you can manage it, I heartily encourage you to participate in one of the Global Field Courses we offer.  Courses that are currently open include a Psychology trip to Nepal, a course in Italy where you will do creative writing, a month-long language and culture immersion in Spain and a wonderful insider arts trip to Cuba this summer.  Take a look at these options and see if you can fit one of them into your life--you won't be sorry!

Think Globally--Participate in an Eastern Global Field Course

What is a Global Field Course at Eastern?  A Global Field Course is a one- to five-week experience that receives Eastern course credit and is FlorenceStudyTour.jpgtaught in part or entirely on-site in a location away from Eastern.


Why take a Global Field Course?  You will travel and learn with your fellow Eastern students and faculty.  You will earn college credits and experience new cultures, increase your self-confidence, and learn to adapt to a different environment.  A global field courses experience looks good on a resume and demonstrates a broader global perspective, something essential in today's international economy. 

Currently, faculty members are preparing 2012 Global Field Courses to travel to:  Jamaica (Education); Jamaica (Social Work);   Cuba (Art); Costa Rica (Biology); Nepal (Psychology); and Florence, Italy (English).  More Global Field Courses are in the planning stages.  For more information, call (860) 465-0207.

Halfway Through the Semester

Believe it or not, in another week the semester will be half over.  This semester got off to a bit of a rocky start with Hurricane Irene, especially if you happened to have a Monday night class!  Hopefully, you have caught up by now.  If you are facing midterm tests, take a look at the blog entries that were just posted about test taking and studying.  In addition, you might be facing midterm writing assignments instead of tests.  If so, fight that tendency we all have to procrastinate!  Even if you only have a few minutes between classes or between shuttling your kids around, use that time to start on your writing assignment.  Often "starting" is the worst part, and once you get started, things flow a little better.  Revising is the easy part!  If you're really stuck, you can always consult with Eastern's Writing Center which is located in the lower level of the library.

Hang in there, the fall semester will be over before you know it.  And, speaking of that, the Wintersession 2012 and Spring 2012 schedules are posted on eWeb.  So, it is not too early to be thinking about what you will take next.  If you need assistance choosing classes, feel free to call for an appointment with a Continuing Education Advisor at (860) 465-0206.
