My name is Christina. I work with VIU as a Student Recruitment Representative. I have been with the university since October of 2007.  I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from Christopher Newport University. I also hold a Master of Arts in Political Science from George Mason University. Though my degrees are in political science, I have a passion for writing and for education in general.  VIU is a wonderful institution that has afforded me the opportunity to explore both of these things. This blog is an outlet for creativity and to aid students in various topics, all the while keeping you abreast of the happenings at VIU.  The blog is designed to have three series of posts:

  • @ VIU – this series will keep readers informed about all of the events and happenings at the university.
  • Topics in Higher Education – this series will explore hot topics in the field of higher education. New ideas, creativity, and issues plaguing the institution of education will be discussed.
  • Topics in International Education – this series is dedicated to international students and scholars.  We will discuss, explore, and engage in a dialogue about issues affecting international education, hardships students face, and much more.

Thank you for stopping by our corner of the web. I am beyond excited about the opportunity to reach out to you all through my words.
