Here we are, at the start of another season, another round of Semester in Detroit. Although me (Dorothy) and my fellow students have only been here for a week and a half, I think I can speak for all of us in saying that it feels much longer from all of the rich experiences we’ve had thus far.
It’s always difficult to leave home and find another place to make your own, and sometimes we can end up feeling like a trapped visitor. But with a community like ours, I hope that we will all be extending ourselves to this city, and finding new ways to serve so that we might become a part of the bigger picture.
So to my fellow students, alumni, and community partners, we invite all of you to take part in this blog, and write about your own experiences, trials and tribulations about this great city.
