Juniors, whereas the Fall contest is for graduating Seniors. Students are encouraged to create a compelling piece that captures the essence of what it means to study abroad.

We received some great submissions that did just that! These international students did a fantastic job creating vivid descriptions of their daily lives abroad. At Cambridge Network, we are always excited to hear about the amazing life experiences our international students are gaining through our services.

The My Journey to the West contest is a great way for our international students to express themselves in either writing composition or videography, and gives them an opportunity to highlight how they have grown with Cambridge Network’s support. This contest had four themes to focus on – Academic life, Social life, Campus life, or Residential life.

There are two categories for the contest: videography and writing composition. Monetary prizes are given to each category.
