The Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center is excited to welcome our 2016 SUSI Scholars to Missoula. Many of you will be arriving here just in time for summer, one of the most sought-after times of year to be in Montana. One of America’s great authors, John Steinbeck, once said “I’m in love with Montana. For other states I have admiration, respect, recognition, even some affection. But with Montana it is love. And it’s difficult to analyze love when you’re in it.” We hope that you will feel similarly by the end of your program.
Throughout your program, this blog will be updated each day by a different Scholar. We will provide detailed instructions on how this process works once you arrive, but in the meantime we encourage you to be thinking critically about daily events and capturing photos, so that we may share your experience with a broad audience. Please share this blog on social media and with friends and family at home.
We wish you safe travels on your journey here, and look forward to meeting you at the airport.
