Thanks to Sheila for this:
Go Read The Rest
Junior Alex Whitman returned from Sweden a few months ago. Many fellow Comets have been wondering what it was like so the Gazette asked him a few questions.
The Gazette: First, why Sweden?
Alex: Swiss Miss, Snowboarding, Northern Lights.
The Gazette: Right on. How did you get there?
Alex: I started looking at study abroad pamphlets last year. Our school has a pretty good success rate with the shorter programs, so I applied to a five-weeker. I had to write a bunch of essays about why I wanted to travel and then submit a list of places where I’d want to go. I think Sweden was fourth on my list. Once you send in all the material, you just sit around and wait for the program to find a spot and send you.
