Adiós GSL Puerto Rico!

My global service-learning experience to declare the least has been nothing short of spontaneous, a truly whirlwind experience. Never would I ever have anticipated having completed our project with Caras in a remote location under complete lockdown amid a worldwide COVID-19 pandemic. That said, my time in Global Service Learning left me with valuable key…

Transitioning GSL Puerto Rico to Zoom University amidst COVID-19

Oh my! It is incredible to think the rate at which the circumstances have drastically altered since my last blog post! The exact instance in which I recall that where I received the news that all the University of Pittsburgh canceled Spring 2020 study abroad, opportunities were eye-opening and shocking with a multitude of emotions…

T-5 Days Till Puerto Rico

         We are now in the home stretch until our departure to Puerto Rico. The time has flown by, and I can’t wait five more days till I can escape the thirty-degree winter weather of Pittsburgh. In exactly one week, our team will be assisting Caras con Causa to implement a marketing initiative for their…

Augsburg – Finale

Regardless of having the opportunity to study abroad, I am beyond thankful I was given the opportunity to be a apart of this class. A major takeaway I have…

Work from Home

This semester has definitely not gone the way that was expected. Unfortunately, I was unable to study abroad in Germany during my senior year spring break. But, this doesn’t mean that I have no take-away’s from the class. Despite being unable to meet our client in Germany, I learned so many things from my Consulting…

A Marketing Experience to Remember

I cannot believe that this project has finally come to an end. Through the countless hours working in and outside of the classroom, it was all worth it. I have become super close with Meade and my seven other group members and we have completed an amazing project for our client that we are all…

A Wrap to Virtual Service Learning

Since my last post, our team has finished our deliverables, wrapped up our report, and gave our presentation, which leaves me with the last component of this course: writing this blog. My last blog post is when I had felt most of the struggles and confusion adapting to the sudden change of online classes, which…
