Even during summer break, the OU Create community is still generating amazing posts, about everything from the Brazilian street art scene to deep reflections on personal growth. We’ve looked through all the posts of the last two weeks and are happy to present to you the Best of OU Create, 5/14-5/27!
And now for the roundup…
To start off, we’re sharing two posts from Emily, who studied abroad in France for the spring semester. In her first post, Emily shares her insight into what it was like to study at her program in Bordeaux.
In her other post, Emily describes a museum exhibit she saw in Paris. In the exhibit, Emily learned about ancient Arabic scripts, predating the invention of the modern Arabic writing system.
On the other side of the world, Katherine wrote a post about street art i Brazil, which she recently attended a talk about here at OU. The street art of Brazil is part of what gives its cities such a distinct identity, but a recent moment has begun to paint over street art. Katherine’s post gives an excellent overview of the topic.
Amy also has her mind abroad. In her post, Amy describes the things she misses most about her study abroad experiences, ranging from language practice to the different styles of architecture in other countries.
For our final post, we’d like to share Drew’s list of “The most Oklahoma things ever.” Even as a non-native, I could relate to all of the items on her list!
And that’s all for now! Keep writing posts, and stay tuned for the next Best of OU Create roundup!
