The concept of time is something that changes depending on specific countries in the world. In the United States, time is strict, but elsewhere, it is more fluid and relaxed. This is something a Colorado State University alumna has experienced in her time working abroad in the United Arab Emirates; even though her job requires her to keep a close watch on the clock, outside of work time is much more relaxed.
Anna Meenan graduated from CSU in fall 2011 with two bachelor’s degrees in international studies and technical journalism, and a minor in Arabic. She is the first student at CSU to have obtained the Arabic minor, and currently works for The Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research center in the country and has been there for about three and a half years.
