Welcome to the Student blog page for International Studies at SMU. We're interested in positive blogs that reflect the range of opportunities and experiences that make SMU such a special place to obtain higher education. Feel free to share your thoughts about great experiences you had in the major, or in the Study Abroad program. We hope that this page will be useful to present and future students who are considering the major, and so in this way you can leave your legacy and make a contribution to both SMU and your major.
We may edit your blog for length or content, but a wordcount of 250‐500 words is a useful target.
Submit your blog to either Professor Wegren at firstname.lastname@example.org or Ray Rafidi, our Academic Advisor, at email@example.com. We will get them posted as soon as we can.
