Mail Call: Postcards from Abroad

During the spring 2015 semester, Penn State students who were studying abroad around the world sent postcards back to the Education Abroad Office to share stories about their classes, life in their host country, and their travels and adventures.  Penn State’s own “Mike the Mailman” delivered the postcards with great enthusiasm, celebrating the journey the postcards had made in order to arrive in State College and the sentiment with which they were sent from our students.  Read Excerpts from Students' Postcards from Abroad
