Global Friendship Day
Over 100 incoming domestic and international students spent the day together building relationships and developing intercultural perspectives last week.

From the Campus Exploration Photo Hunt Challenge to group activities like virtual reality, kitten yoga, rock climbing, exploring on-campus museums, and more, Miami's first ever Global Friendship Day was a blast!

Did you know these fun facts about the Director of ISSS?

  • My first trip abroad was to southern Germany with the Xavier University Concert Choir the summer after my freshman year of college.
  • My favorite tea is Da Hong Pao (“big red robe”), a dark oolong tea from Fujian Province in China–I drink it almost every day.
  • I have traveled to at least 10 different cities in mainland China and my favorite is Xi’an–I love the food there!
  • I met my husband when we were both working at bookstore in Cincinnati 19 years ago.
  • Our daughter is named after the main character in one of our favorite books (I Capture the Castle).
  • I came to Miami University for a summer camp in 6th grade and the main thing I remember is that we were instructed not to step foot on the grass! I still feel really guilty whenever I walk across the grass on campus.

A MUDEC Alum's thoughts during the 50th Anniversary Celebration last October.

"The Miami Lux program started a long relationship with Luxembourg. I still have many friends from back in the day of '82 and '83."

Study in the Heart of Europe this Spring Semester!

There's still time to secure your spot for a great semester in the heart of Europe! Admissions are rolling until the deadline of October 1st.
  • A day in the life: For a glimpse at a typical day in Luxembourg in our beautiful château, check out the brand new Student Life video.
  • Choose your own adventure: Classes are Monday through Thursday and Luxembourg is a 3 hour train ride from 5 countries. Discovery tours on Fridays (at no cost!) take you to neighboring countries such as Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, and France.
  • A cost-effective option: Tuition and fees are comparable to a semester in Oxford. For sophomores, there are even further savings on room and board. Scholarships from Miami as well as local, state, and national organizations are available based on both need and merit.
  • Travel together: All students embark upon a 5-day field trip to another European country with their classmates and faculty member. Here are the locations you will choose from:
Copenhagen, Denmark
