My name is Erin Welch and I am a sophomore at the University of Minnesota Duluth. This semester I have decided to take my studies abroad and I am studying at Griffith University located in Brisbane, Australia. I am studying at the South Bank Campus, home to the Queensland College of Arts....a perfect match for me and my pursuit of a degree in Graphic Design. I chose to study abroad because I love to travel and I figured why not get some schooling done while also seeing another part of the world? I have wanted to go to Australia ever since I was a little kid and I still can't believe it's actually happening now. I can't wait for the plethora of new experiences to come as part of this trip and I'll try my best to keep this blog updated with photos/entries of my adventures in the land down under. Cheers!
