History Major Elisabeth Spalding and History Alum Jennifer Staton Meet up in Norway
History alum Jennifer Staton, working in Celle, Germany, as a Fulbright Teaching Assistant, recently traveled to visit history major Elisabeth Spalding, currently studying abroad in Oslo, Norway.
According to Jennifer, "We swapped stories of our experiences living abroad, comparing certain aspects of life in Norway and Germany and joking about certain quirks that reach across borders (i.e., how almost nothing is open on Sundays). We both realize and appreciate this moment in our lives, and our experiences abroad now happily overlap because this visit."
Pictured here are Jennifer and Elisabeth on a fjord atop Holmenkollen, one of Elisabeth's favorite sites.
