Dear readers,

If you’ve ever travelled, you know that in this itinerant and often precarious situation, your values and identity are often questioned. Even the most close-minded people will glean a new openness to the world and will realize, at least upon further reflection, the impact that this experience has had on them. Whether a tourist or authentic visit, individually or in a group, long or short, in their own town or in an unknown place…travelling always causes a reflection. That’s one of the strong points of a semester abroad. This month, the students took advantage of their time in France to discover new places – territories, cultures, personal practices, and ways of approaching travel and the city of Toulouse.
