SMC Study Away hosted the inagural “Study Away Soiree” on Friday, October 5th in the Annenberg Hall Atrium during the 2012 Homecoming Weekend festivities. Alums from all programs dating back to the 1970′s gathered to reminisce with former classmates and professors about their SMC Study Away experiences as studying away has been a highlight for many alumni, young and old alike!

SMC’s own Paul Geissinger – “Starkey” – has made the cover of Philly Weekly! The magazine did a story on the burgeoning “dub step” scene in Philly and cite Paul as “the real unsung hero of the scene”! And they also mention his completing his graduate degree in “music production” at SMC and they make special mention of the role that Study Away played in his career development (dub step being a mainly London-based thing). Check out the article here! Paul is an alum from the London, Fall 2001 program.
Check out this Campus Philly interview with London Spring 2011 alum and SMC Study Away peer advisor alum, Zach Thornbury as he talks about how his time in London has given him a new appreciation for the city of Philadelphia and all it has to offer.
SMC Study Away Alumni and Prospective Student Event
On November 17, 2011 SMC Study Away hosted a special event for Study Away Alumni and Prospective students in the Atrium of Annenberg Hall. Prospective students had the chance to talk to returned students and faculty directors in an informal setting and then view a special documentary about the study away experience in South Africa by Lauren Hertzler, an alum of the inaugural South Africa Summer 2011 program. Temple Update was there to capture the excitement – check out the video below and be on the lookout for another event during the Spring 2012 semester!
