All Abroad!

Last week, the library had the privilege of hosting Crystal S., a friend of our very own Ms. Atkinson and a brave soul indeed. Just after graduating from UIUC, Crystal took a chance, bought a plane ticket to Guatemala, and began a life in central America. Last Thursday, she visited Uni to tell about her adventures and to offer words of wisdom to students considering a future move abroad. From stories of Guatemala and its native people to learning the language to how she found work (and eventually built a successful career), Crystal's lunchtime visit was enriching and entertaining-- albeit all too brief!

Lunching AND Learning? What a cool library!

Raise the roof for the awesomeness of adventures abroad!
