Now that Spring Break is over, it’s time to hit the books! There’s only a few weeks left in the spring semester, and the deadlines are coming up soon. The OU Create community has been writing about everything from Spring Break to summer study abroad. We’ve selected our favorite posts from the past two weeks, so without further ado, please enjoy the best of OU Create 3/26-4/06!
And now for the roundup…
To begin the last of our Spring Break posts, we have Hannah’s blog post about her Spring break trip to Alaska. Hannah went with her family and enjoyed the natural beauty of America’s last frontier.
Next, Emilee shared her fourth Spring Break trip to Morelos, Mexico. Emilee travels to Mexico every year during this time in order to volunteer at a children’s home. It definitely seems like the kids appreciate it!
To round out our Spring Break posts, we have Kestrel’s post about studying business in Costa Rica over Spring Break. Kestrel’s post meditates on how we classify countries as first- or third-world, and the flaws within that system. Check out Kestrel’s post for a detailed description of Costa Rica’s economic landscape, as well!
Natasha also wrote about study abroad, although her experience will take place over the summer, not Spring Break. Natasha is going to study in Stuttgart, Germany from Summer 2018! In her post, Natasha creates a quick “survival German” primer for others, like herself, who want to travel in Germany but don’t speak German.
Finally, Julia shared a post about her identity as a feminist. Specifically, Julia discusses all of her reasons to march during the Women’s March on Oklahoma’s capitol; her post states outright the issues she hopes feminism can address within American society.
And that’s all for now! Keep writing posts, and stay tuned for the next Best of OU Create roundup!
