Faculty Highlight – Dr. Monk

By Kayla Joseph, TODOS Engagement Coordinator, Barcelona SAE I sat down with Dr. Selena Judon-Monk from St. Augustine’s University to discover where her passion for international education comes from and how that led her to create a Customized Program with Barcelona SAE. I first met Dr. Monk at Barcelona SAE’s 10th Anniversary Site Visit in July 2019, and from the moment we met, I could see the excitement on her face as she spoke about how she wanted her students to create a Barcelona experience all their own. Dr. Monk is a kind, intelligent woman that is a true champion for getting HBCU students to go abroad.  Can you tell me a little about what you teach and what inspired you to go into that field? I did a Masters in Biology and a Doctorate in Public Health. I worked at the Durham Health Department for 7 years doing Program Management, but eventually left to do research. Through it all, I learned that my passion still laid in teaching. I currently teach Global Health, and as a part of the course, I encourage all of my students to go abroad so I encourage them to connect with the Study Abroad Office. What are you working on right now? I never studied abroad myself, but I’ve been lucky enough to travel to a variety of different countries on my own...

By Rebecca Land, Missouri State University During your study abroad experience, there is an abundance of cities to visit. One of my favorite places I’ve traveled to is San Sebastián. San Sebastián is a coastal city located on the northern edge of Spain. A friend of a friend recommended it, so my friends and I decided to plan a little getaway weekend. It ended up being such a gorgeous place, and now I recommend it to everyone I meet. How to Get ThereWe used the app Omio to find the cheapest route to San Sebastián. Traveling by bus ended...

Four Reasons I love Barcelona’s Public Transportation System

By Savannah Henry, Guilford College 1. There are so many options. You’ve got the bus, the metro, the FGC Line, and the tram. Depending on where you’re living, these can all come together for an easy commute. The metro is always a bit crowded, but it has thirteen lines which bring a lot of flexibility. Like the metro, the FGC is a subway. It’s a quick observation that the FGC trains are more spacious and tidy. There are full pleather armrest seats, more than enough room for the passengers, and, in some trains, screens that tell you which station is next....
