Here is your chance to watch your experiences come to life before your eyes and become a masterpiece, performed by the Diavolo dance company out of Los Angeles. Your stories and experiences will be implemented into a professional dance performance that will be seen around the country. The theme of the piece is a Dream Catcher, which eliminates negative dreams and lets the positive aspects of our lives flow through. The experiences of the students will be combined with two other story circles, 1) The casa de Guadalupe community in cold springs 2) A local battered womens shelter. You are invited to join a story circle made up of 8-10 CSB/SJU American multicultural students; the story circle will be Wednesday Feb 12, 6:30-9:00 in the Alumni Lounge at the TRC. Please let Theresa know if you plan to participate.
Hi, my name is Anthony Yglesias and I am one of the multicultural academic advising assistants working with Theresa Anderson. I have recently returned from a study abroad excursion in China and the experiences that I was able to have were amazing. I got the chance to see many beautiful things and meet some wonderful people, but I am glad to be home.
I am a third year psychology major at Saint Johns University, I have aspirations to be a psychologist and I think I am well on my way. I have a great deal of fun participating in volunteer activities with my friends in the Service fraternity AKS. So far I have had a wonderful time at St. Johns and I know that there are more fun times to come.
I am originally from a city of Riverside in the sunny state of California. I have many interests that include playing football, drawing and hiking in the mountains of the southwestern part of the United States. I am Mexican American; I have three brothers and two sisters and I am the second oldest of the entire bunch.
I had fun living in a foreign country, but I am very happy to be back and very interested in meeting all of you soon. If you need any assistance feel free to contact me by e-mail or in the office and I will do my best to help.
On Tuesday January 21st Academic Advising hosted a study abroad informational session. The director of international education, Stephen Burmeister-May gave all that were in attendance a show of great enthusiasm about all study abroad experiences and mentioned a few highlights. Below are just some of the things mentioned.
All of these programs have many wonderful things about them and I would ask you to consider them all if interested in studying abroad. If you have any questions feel free to contact Stephen Burmeister-May or Sharon Schmitt at 3612 or take a trip down to Quad 128 and have a chat with either of them.
