International Experience

My international experiences have come through traveling the world for work. Unfortunately, I discovered international travel in my late 20’s when I traveled to India.  (Learn from my mistake and participate in an Education Abroad Experience!) As it is with anyone who has traveled internationally, I quickly became addicted; nobody will ever have to “twist my arm” to get on a plane to travel. Simply put, I love it.  I have mostly traveled throughout Asia and Southeast Asia and, currently, my favorite countries are China (have been there 3 times) and Singapore.  My “bucket list” is about a mile long containing too many countries to list; however, upon retiring (in the distant future) – I plan to travel the world and visit former students (now friends and colleagues.)  There is nothing better than visiting a country with someone from that country… I feel that it gives you a MUCH better understanding of the true nature and culture of that country.  I have spent the last 7 years studying Mandarin and possess medium level of proficiency. While not fluent at the moment – that is the goal.

Favorite Aspect of CSU

While the campus is beautiful, what makes a place special are the people.  Being new to Colorado State University, I am looking forward to meeting the faculty and staff – although I have already come to realize that we have wonderful people that work in the Office of International Programs.
