Cheers, dear Community members!

Apologies for long silence in AbroadPlanet.com... Everyone that was involved into this project was pretty busy - graduation, exams, finding & funding degree progs, jobs... Crazy times for students, you know But 2 members Andy (the light keeper) & LILKA (the one that is always around) are now back on board with new ideas & exciting plans!

First we are going to issue our online Community Newsletter! (Finally!) & we invite you to participate in its creation. What would you want to see there? What about? What sections.. Fun corner? Success stories? Scholarships? Jobs? Everyday life of int'l students? Academic stuff? Where to find used books, Kool music.. Competitions, games for users.. Funny nominations for forum participants.. These are just some suggestions from the top of the head. Go ahead with brainstorming and help us!

For the first period we are planning to issue our Community Newsletter on bi-weekly basis. Sorry guys.. Short of time.. We are just volunteers But if you guyz will be sending us materials, we will make it weekly!

& above all, We need to name our Community Newsletter! It should be something student related... Any kewl ideas?!

We want to recognize our Community members' needs & desires to serve them best Your contributions, suggestions & opinions will be highly appreciated! and if we get some sponsors we will be able to give away some free stuff for you guys!!!
YAA!! Free stuff rulez))

So, let's make it! Our Own Community Newsletter Our Community!

Keep up,

Andy and Lilith

Me back

Oki guyz, as now we lack time & resources, the first issues we will make in plain text format. Very simple, informative, funny, useful.. & not so overloaded i need your help for 2 sections: Articles & Interviews.

1. Articles Ė we need volunteers to write short stories.. there is no format & subject limits, as long as it is intíl student oriented:-) Please send your articles to me with some info about you, whatever you want to appear under your article.. like name/nick, education/major, location/home country, interests/hobbies..

2. Interview Ė we need an experienced intíl student, who has already passed all the stages Ė applying to US universities, finding scholarships.. visa & transportation issues.. & became a successful intíl student in the States. Alumni of FSA Programs are as well welcome to share their experience. The interview will be quite informal, casual.. slang & student jokes are most welcome ) If you believe youíd be a kool interviewee, please, ASAP, send me a brief info about you, your program, US university, home country.. according which Iíll make a questionnaire. The questions will be of whatever might interests our members, who plan to stady in the States.

Thatís the part of only what weíve planned by now, but we will be happy to add more sections, activities.. Please, fell free to send us your suggestions. The first issue of the Newsletter is to be published next week!

& for the future.. we are planning to gather a Newsletter team. This would be a great internship opportunity for those students, whose majors are in Journalism, Intíl relations, online communications.. Upon request, we can send you an official confirmation of Internship, recommendations for your universities or future employers.

If interested in any of above, please mailto: lia@abroadplanet.com with the subject: NEWSLETTER. Awaiting for your feedback

Best regards,
Your AbroadPlanet
