    From the

    On Saturday, 37 Honors students attended Clemson's first Global Symposium, an event designed to showcase many of the international opportunities available to Clemson students and to inspire the entire community to a higher level of global engagement and citizenship.

    The student attendees heard a keynote address by Dr. Ken Addison of Oxford University on global climate change; presentations by current students and Clemson alumni on a wide range of international experiences; and a concluding talk by a Peace Corps alumnus on the cultural differences between the United States and his host country, Mozambique.

    The Symposium inspired me to write this week to en-courage you to think about how you can be more glob-ally engaged throughout your Clemson years and be-yond. Now would be a great time to think about making study abroad or an international internship a vital part of your undergraduate experience. You might commit to taking a foreign language or other international course next semester, resolve to keep better track of international news and issues, or find other ways to become a better global citizen.

    Thanks to all our Honors student delegates to the Glob-al Symposium! We hope to see even more Honors stu-dents at this event in the coming years.
