College Student Turns His Study Abroad Into A 100-Day Dance Party Across China

Exchange Student Dances His Way Across China
Watch Jake Dance His Way Across China!

When Dartmouth student Jake Gaba left for his study abroad program in China, he wasn’t content to just study Mandarin, learn about the culture, and snap a few Instagram photos. He wanted to document his journey through dance. So he put on a pair of egregious rainbow board shorts, queued up some Bruno Mars, and shook his booty all over the country. The best part? All the locals who happily joined in. [Laughing Squid]

11 Things You Have To Do While Studying Abroad

If you don’t want to hear a rambling soliloquy of stories that have nothing to do with you, don’t ask me about Australia. Not only will I blabber about about it for hours on end to anyone that asks (or doesn’t), I will try to strike up a conversation with any stranger in my near vicinity who has a whiff of an Australian accent. But in my defense, I just really, really loved my study abroad experience. I made friends for life, did things I thought I would never do (um, hi skydiving) and truly had some of the most epic nights I can (barely) remember. So in case I was too subtle, I recommend studying abroad. But a great experience doesn’t just start and end with a passport. Here are some things you need to do to have that “Crap, I really wish I got a green card” experience:

Intern Daley is off to South Africa for the semester! Read More »

The Frisky’s former intern Daley is back from studying abroad for her spring semester — and back interning at The Frisky. Here’s the last in her series of pieces about her studies in Africa.

Clad in my black tank top and baggy, boldly printed South African pants, the dryness from my face was forming cracks in my foundation, and my mascara was flaking under my heavy eyelids. I had just been on an 11-1/2 hour flight from Cape Town to Amsterdam, and was now flying eight more hours over the pond, back to New York City for the summer. A glass of white wine and a bit of shuteye was calling my name, and when the male flight attendant strolled through the aisle with his beverage cart, I put in my order.

“Can I get a glass of white wine and a water, please,” I mumbled.

“Sure,” the flight attendant responded. As he was pouring my glass, he did a double take at my face and asked in his Dutch accent, “You are over 16?” Keep reading »

The Frisky’s former intern extraordinaire, Daley, is studying abroad during her spring semester. Over the next several months, she’ll be writing us dispatches from her studies in  Africa. 

My butt was starting to ache as his backbone constantly shifted from underneath me. With every step he took, my thumping heart was anticipating a fall as I held on for dear life to the experienced rider in front of me. My legs stretched out farther than they ever have and the blanket placed between us was doing little to subside my distress. It was my third week in South Africa, I had yet to start school, and I was free riding the world’s largest land animal. Keep reading »

Study Abroad: I’m Off To South Africa For The Semester

The Frisky’s former intern extraordinaire, Daley, is studying abroad during her spring semester. Over the next several months, she’ll be writing us dispatches from her studies in  Africa. 

“South Africa is going to be hot,” I told Kim, my hairstylist of almost nine years, “so I need a couple of inches off.”

While individually dying the multitude of grey hairs that had enveloped my head, Kim laughed and said, “Why didn’t you pick, like, a European country to study abroad, like a normal kid?”

“The evil Spanish language,” I replied. Keep reading »
