We're looking for student bloggers!

We want talented writers to serve as official Study Abroad Office (SAO) bloggers via WordPress!

Do you have a writing style that would make you an exciting addition to the SAO blog? Do you plan on taking captivating photos of your experiences that will motivate future Sun Devils to study abroad? Then apply to blog about your study abroad program for the official ASU SAO blog!

Selected bloggers would be expected to contribute at least three blog posts during the duration of their program (one towards the beginning, one during the middle, and one at the end.) However, more posts with good content are encouraged! Each post needs at least 3 photos, but you're allowed to submit more, too. Bloggers will be assigned contributor status in WordPress to allow them to write the post but not publish. The SAO will review all posts for content/grammar and then publish. 

Content should be academic and/or cultural in nature. Posts focusing on partying, nightlife, and alcohol/drugs will not be published. It is okay to briefly mention nightlife and/or partying if making a cultural reference but these should not be the main foci of the posts. 

Examples of good posts would be to recount a social/cultural excursion that you participated on; to discuss the academic differences between an American course and a course in the host location; to recount a personal trip taken during the program; to describe new international friends the you've made; to describe a funny or inspirational anecdote; to reflect on cultural lessons learned; etc.
Every blogger will be asked to share their entries on their own social media channels and use our official hashtag - #SunDevilsAbroad.

Bloggers must be studying abroad through an ASU SAO approved program for the term in which they are applying. Selected bloggers will be asked to read and adhere to all of the terms, conditions, obligations, and policies imposed by WordPress.

Be ready with writing and photo samples! Deadline to apply is Wednesday, May 4.
