The Shinn Study Abroad Committee
is dedicated to giving students at Rhode Island College
opportunities to make the world their campus. This is a program designed to globalize the educational
experiences here at my school by allowing students to study abroad. I have worked on this committee the last 3 years and wholeheartedly support this program; when I was going to school, help from programs such as this one allowed me to complete my research and internationalize my own educational experience. On November 15th, 2013, we will hold a raffle ($5 per ticket, $20 for a book of 5
) to raise funds for this worthy goal. See the photo below; there are 9 prizes that you can attempt to win in the raffle you can contact with me for your selection(s) at sdixon(at)ric(dot)edu with the subject line "RAFFLE".
If anyone wishes, you may also choose to donate money to help sustain the webpages I run for free. The first one is Geography Education
on scoop.it and the second one is geographyeducation.org
I want these sites to remain free, but I'd also like to keep them
ad-free. I don't aspire to have this become a money-making venture (at
least, not at the expense of my readers), but besides the time, it does
incur some costs (URL, hosting fees, etc.) and I would like for the activity
to at least pay for itself. If you feel this site's has helped you out, I'd
appreciate it if you'd consider returning the favor.
