One day in the life of a student

The theme of our collaborative film this year will be "One day in the life of a student."  By showcasing our unique school cultures, we can keep each other motivated for global learning experiences.  Eight universities around the world have been invited to create one collaborative movie. This collaborative project is a chance to express the value of the ultimate bond between the countries.
