Just do it!

So of course, being in Australia for two months was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I feel like I took full advantage of the awesome opportunity we have through the LOREX program; I learned new techniques, helped other students with field work, shared

To my home away from home: Shalom and Lehitra’ot

By Antrelle D. Clark As I boarded the Delta flight #249 for my 12-hour flight back to the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, I began to reminisce over all of the memories I made and the people I met. I remember the day I found out that I would be spending the summer in Israel. I was filled with so much excitement until the day got closer, then I started to

Umeå, the roaring city

By Vendy Hazukova On October 16, I made my way to the Abisko train station, said my goodbyes, and set forth to the big city of Umeå. Umeå is home to approximately 120,000 people, two university campuses, and despite its northern, rather remote location, there is a vibrant cultural life. For the duration of my stay, I joined the Ecology and Environmental Science (EMG) department at Umeå University, and I

By Meredith Theus In applying for, preparing for, and completing my LOREX exchange at the University of Montreal, I had many expectations of what it would be like to be a visiting research student at a new university in a new place with a new language and a new culture (both in and out of the lab). Now that I have finished my exchange and have begun reflecting on the

So Things Can Go Wrong…But That Is Okay!

By Meredith Theus There are many great opportunities and experiences that occur with a research exchange. It’s an opportunity to learn new research techniques, meet other scientists, interact with a different lab group, and experience a new place. At the University of Montreal, I have been learning how to process and analyze dissolved organic matter, working closely with a graduate student in the host lab, the Lapierre Lab. I have

Slouching towards Abisko

By Vendy Hazukova Over the past couple of years, I have exchanged summers in Maine for field work in the Arctic. This summer was no different: I spent a little over two months in West Greenland studying how lakes respond to climate change and after enjoying the East coast sun for a couple of weeks in August, I have embarked on another journey: back to the polar circle, to Abisko.

G’day from down unda!

By Abby Webster Walking through the Lismore campus reminds you that you’re in a subtropical environment – lots of cycads and eucalyptus trees and sunbathing water dragons. I’m Abby – a 3rd-year PhD student at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF). I traded gloomy Syracuse, NY for sunny Lismore, NSW, Australia and already know my 8 weeks will go by way too quickly. My exchange takes place
