We experience all kinds of distances in college. Of course, there’s the physical distance of being away from home, whether you’re 20 minutes or 2,000 miles away. It can test your emotions, too, to be away from the people you love. There are also the types of distances that can test your body. In this episode, we’ll explore both the literal and metaphorical distance. We hope you’ll come along for the ride.
- A story about the physical distances student-athletes push their bodies in a competitive sport
- The struggles of being an international student
- What happens when you leave your laptop in the back of a cab and you go to great lengths to get it back
- Some strange, funny and touching missives from home
- And more!
Look for it here Wednesday, Feb. 9!
Episode 2, DOUBLE TAKE, is now available!
Our daily lives are filled with double takes. They’re the things that make you look twice or think twice about something or someone. We all do it: We judge and misjudge others without getting to know them. We pass the same people, places, things, and never stop to take a second glance. This show is about those second glances—where we stop judging a book by its cover and actually read the book.
