Hong Kong has an MSU alumni program where many foreign MSU alumni meet up four times throughout the year and hang out. Our study abroad program meets up with the alumni group as one of their scheduled events. The alumni I met were very uplifting and excited to meet current students from MSU as they are a long ways away from their alumni program.

I spent seven months and eighteen days in Japan. While I was there, I wore slippers to class every day. I rode my bike in all kinds of weather, ate ramen at every opportunity, and climbed mountains and towers. I learned language, and I learned about myself.

We all quickly learned that surfing is extremely exhausting, but so exhilarating. It's one of those amazing sports that regardless of how many times you fall, how many times you can't successfully stand up, how many waves hit you, you always want to catch just one more wave.

My biggest goal was to be able to have conversations with my host mother, who would make me the most wonderful dinners but we could never talk during them. The first night I was able to really talk to her, she hugged me and told me she was so proud. That made all of the stress and fear worth it.

One of our favorite nighttime things to do was find a karaoke bar and belt out our best notes. The best thing about Korean karaoke is that you actually get your own room and can sing in the privacy of your friends. This is definitely the only way I'll ever want to sing karaoke from now on!

I would recommend the International Food Laws program to any student interested in any aspect of food, including farming, food technology, food culture, supply chain management, and beyond. It is important for students to see varying and unique approaches for dealing with complex issues in the food industry because it prompts us to think beyond our own system, developing our ability to innovate and respond resourcefully to new issues.

Working at their internship sites four mornings a week, the fellows began to gain experience and quickly picked up new ideas to implement upon their return to East Africa. While working side-by-side, fellows and internship hosts exchanged best practices, shared anecdotes that revealed similarities and differences among approaches to agribusiness, and laughed together as they got to know one another.

Along with the Nigerian government, MSU is co-developing a program that will demonstrate the university's power to implement activities related to the education, entrepreneurship training, job placement, mentoring, and leadership development of Nigerian Scholars.
