Gator Selected as Study Abroad Student of the Week

janee baileyJanee` Bailey, Gator and psychology major, was selected as the Abroad101 Student of the Week for this week.

Abroad101 is the first and largest study abroad review website. Abroad101's mission is to promote global citizenship by fostering the most meaningful study abroad experience for all students through technology innovation. The Abroad101 Student of the Week initiative awards a student with a donation towards their trip costs.

The site recently selected Bailey as their seventh student of the week.

In July, Bailey will be traveling abroad for the first time in her life - to Ghana! Ghana, located in West Africa, is not only oldest of Africa's democratic societies, but also home to a rich natural and cultural landscape. From planned trips to wildlife sanctuaries like the Baobeng Rieme Monkey Sanctuary and historically significant landmarks like the slave castles on Cape Coast, Bailey will immerse herself in Ghanaian history and culture while studying African-American psychology.

"This trip is important to me because it will be my first time going out of the country and I cannot wait to take this opportunity of a lifetime," she said.

Way to go!
