Global Awareness Through Education (GATE) is a two-year program designed for incoming freshmen interested in a globally-focused, culturally diverse education. GATE offers internationally-infused core curriculum classes, cultural activities and service opportunities. The program culminates in a five-week study abroad experience the summer after a student’s sophomore year.
The purpose of the blog is to allow GATE students to share their travel study experience in Brazil & Argentina with family, friends, and the UT Tyler community. Students will blog about their initial impressions, material they are covering in class, cultural & historical site visits, their interaction with the local culture and any other topics deemed appropriate. The blog will also include photos so that the UT Tyler community can vicariously experience Brazil & Argentina.
