Hello and welcome to QU International. My name is Florian. Let me introduce you to this blog, its purpose, and what you can expect to find here.
Being both a journalism graduate student at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., and a visitor to the United States of America, QU International focuses on the experience of being an international student.
The goal is to tell you, dear reader, the story of being an international student from different angles and perspectives. Of course, this story will include personal views – my own thoughts, feelings, insights, experiences, and discoveries. In order to broaden the context and show different sides of the international student experience, I’m planning on giving other people a voice, as I discover their stories both on and off campus.
In addition, I might sprinkle in topics that I feel fit the general theme of this blog. For example, I can picture to write about how I find my way into journalism, how Quinnipiac allows me to experiment with different genres and types of media, and what differences in the practice of journalism I detect along the journey.
I hope you find the reading experience enjoyable, entertaining, and informing.
Thanks for reading,
