Friends at Avenues,

How wonderful it is to welcome you to your Avenues and Where There Be Dragons Yak Board for “Rising Tides and Taiwan: Examining Climate Change in the Field"!

It may seem like the spring semester just began, yet May is fast-approaching! In just a few months you’ll trade bustling Manhattan for the night markets of Taipei and find yourself bouncing back and forth between time and place as you hear stories from elders in Yangmingshan. You’ll spend days and nights with homestay families who will take you in as their own upon meeting you; you'll learn kung-fu and touch old-growth trees who have seen hundreds of years of change; you’ll eat new things, laugh with new friends, and make sense of the experience in your own wonderful way.

And alongside you, you’ll find that this Yak board will be a powerful forum that weaves together an exquisite narrative of the collective journey you’ll be on with your Avenues-Dragons community from the pre-course days, well into the field, and even after.

We are thrilled to be a part of your experience in Taiwan. To make it real, the first thing we are asking of you is an introduction. You may be well-acquainted with the folks on your course, but you may not know their expectations, excitement, goals, curiosities, and fears of your classmates, instructors, and teachers. This forum will provide the space and support to share these things. And, you’ll be amazed looking back at the end of the course and witness the ways you’ve grown and changed in just two weeks!

We are overjoyed to follow along with your adventure.

Love,

The Dragons Administration Team
