    Fashion Revolution Flash Mob: Learning on the Job

    Take your education outside the classroom – Semester at Sea

    We started in Germany and then we went down to Spain, Ghana, South Africa Mauritius, India, Vietnam, China, Japan, Hawaii and the USA. Semester at Sea is a multi-country study abroad program. We started in Germany and literally sailed around the world. When we’re traveling from country to country, we take the classes while we’re sailing and then once we arrive at a country we have four to six days to just explore and do our own thing. The most important lesson that I learned from Semester at Sea was how small we are in a world and how much there is to experience but also what a big difference…

    My story in 3 objects: Red Strivens, Graduate Diploma in Law at City

Part of the reason I chose City it was because it’s somewhere that doesn’t really spoon-feed you just…

    Get Downtown to Business at the University of Saint Francis

    >>USF PROFESSOR LIZ UNGER: Our location has changed the game for our business students. Really the best attribute of the School of Business is proximity to businesses, allowing them to walk two blocks down to their internship, to walk to Parkview Field to eat lunch with their mentor, or to have interviews two blocks down the road.>>USF STUDENT CAITLINE SOUTHERN: I really was drawn towards the USF Business program, I’d heard that they are very hands-on within the community and especially being centered downtown, they were able to work with so many different companies. Building those connections is very important for the business world and with the professors and with…

    AlphaGo

    It’s intensely contemplative. It is almost hypnotic. It’s like putting your hand on the third rail of the universe. If you play Go seriously, there is a chance that you will get exposed to this experience that… is kind of like nothing else on the planet. Go is putting you in a place where you’re always at the very farthest reaches of your capacity. There’s a reason that people have been playing Go for thousands and thousands of years, right? It’s not just that they want to understand Go. They want to understand what understanding is. And maybe that is truly what it means to be human. When I was…
