Unless you have been living under a rock for the past two weeks, you know about the injustice committed against a young man from Sanford, Florida.  This 17-year-old boy, Trayvon Martin, was on his way from the store to his father’s house when George Zimmerman, 26, called 911 to report suspicious behavior from Trayvon. Though the 911 operator told Zimmerman not to follow Trayvon Zimmerman disobeyed the operator. Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed teen shortly after he made the call.

So You Want to Study Abroad

Hello ladies! Currently, I’m sitting in a chair in my living room in Ireland.  It’s ok, take a moment and read that statement again.  I’m in Ireland studying abroad.  Surprisingly, not many students study abroad at Howard, but that’s because they don’t know what to do.  Well, I’m here to inform you. 1.      If you are even remotely interested in studying abroad you need to start your research now.  Go to the Ralph Bunche International Center on campus (across from the counseling center and around the corner from the ILAB) and speak to Ms. Betty Aiken.  She’ll give you all the information you need.  2.      Before you speak to her though, have an idea about what you want.  Where do you want to go?  How long do you want to be there for?...

It’s safe to say that for most of us at Howard, studying abroad is part of our college plan. But even with a study abroad plan in the works (or behind you), when Spring begins to peak through the clouds, the travel itch starts, and dreaming about an epic Euro-trip or an Australian adventure becomes a daily distraction when struggling through our oh-so-boring lectures. But planning a trip abroad can be scary, time consuming, and let's not forget--super expensive. Lucky for us, Her Campus has partnered with Contiki, the #1 travel company for young people, offering over 200 guided tours and pre-planned trips in 40+ countries, exclusively for 18-35-year-olds—all for amazingly low prices!...
