Preparatory Process

A Journey Takes Shape

What has the experience been like thus far as the Peace Corps group traveled from San Francisco to Surabaya, Indonesia?  What sorts of things have you been doing in Pre-Service Training orientation in Surabaya?  Where will you be staying for the 10-week Pre-Service training?

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, a world without end…less posibilities, people, and places to expore

Awaiting Placement/Site Introduction

Welcome to my Peace Corps Masters International blog.  This is where you will be able to follow my experiences as a volunteer and researcher throughout my time in the Peace Corps.

Updated information will be infrequent during the Fall and Spring semesters as I complete coursework and await a Peace Corps assignment.  In the mean time, feel free to explore the links that are provided on the right-hand side of this page.  Peruse Michigan Tech’s resources to learn more about the unique programs offered.  “MTU PCMI Geohazards” explains the concept of the program and more information for prospective students.  “MTU PIRE” contains specific information about the people and projects throughout the program’s history.  The additional links are popular media sources that I find informative, easily accessible to the general public, and enjoyable.  Additional pages (listed on the top right of this page) will include more information about myself and others in the program.

Upon assignment and departure, the blog should fill up quickly, and you will be able to use the toolbar to search my posts by month or category.
