Student and Alumni Blogs
Get to know OFSP students and alumni! We have several students who are either national fellowship winners or are Carolina and McNair scholars who are documenting their experiences while traveling abroad on scholarship or while they are doing unique activities on campus through student blogs.
Keep up-to-date on each of the OFSP bloggers' many adventures and learn what life is really like! If you enjoy reading each student's post, leave them a comment or ask them a question about their experience.
David Wolfer, is a Rotary Global Grant Scholar from 2015. He is currently studying Public Health at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. He spends his time in lectures theatres, exploring via bike, and hanging out with his host, an artistic octogenarian. He lives perpetually vacillating between logic and whimsy as a Southerner learning to not say sir and ma'am.
