Maimuna Jallow, a third-year civil engineering major, came back to campus this spring after a semester studying in Europe. With funding from the Joe S. Mundy Global Learning Endowment, Jallow took classes at Georgia Tech-Lorraine and explored the continent. Jallow said her months abroad left her with “newfound personal strength, courage, independence, and a strong appreciation of public transportation and infrastructure.”
This summer was just as much about learning as it was about traveling. Some of the most inspiring learning moments came not from museums or programmed education, but from mistakes, close calls and encounters with the locals — we all made some mistakes this summer.
