No Ordinary Journey: A Personal Essay

"No Ordinary Journey ..." A Personal Essay

The Office of International Education is happy to announce the winners of our 7th annual essay contest,  "No Ordinary Journey," which was open to all international students. The essay is a celebration of students and their personal journeys and experiences in adjusting to the ways of a culture different than their own. Students were invited to share their true stories regarding situations and adjustments to a new environment, as well as moments of personal growth and understanding of 'local ways.'

Please take a look at our winners from 2013:

  • First Place: Favour Akinjiyan and Ayowande Ayodele were tied for first place (both from Nigeria)
  • Second Place: Alvaro Olmedo from Brazil and Sai Chandra Vallabheneni from India were tied for second place
  • Third Place: Chen Chen  (China) was third place


All students who submitted an essay were celebrated at a luncheon held in their honor on Friday, November 22, 2013.  Please watch for our next call for essays in October, 2014.
