Studying Abroad is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that provides students with a variety of unique experiences. BeyoND Study Abroad is the official Notre Dame International Study Abroad podcast that captures these experiences via student stories from abroad. We are committed to showcasing the various stages of studying abroad including the excitement and the challenges. In doing so, we aim to highlight the diversity of experiences found among our students, returnees, and alumni throughout the study abroad process.
Join us bi-weekly on Fridays as we venture beyond study abroad with our student host, Ainsley Hurford, and a number of guests.
Ainsley Hurford is a member of the class of 2024 majoring in Political Science and Theology. She will be studying abroad in the Rome Undergraduate program in the spring of 2023, and she cannot wait to immerse herself into Italian culture, put her Latin knowledge to the test, and consume as much gelato as possible. Ainsley has been able to travel to Europe once before and loved seeing the intersections of history and modernity and learning about different cultural practices, from dress and common phrases to religious traditions and political ideologies. Ainsley is incredibly excited to host the BeyoND Study Abroad podcast and continue this space for others to share their experiences abroad as well.
