Tales from Abroad: A...

Tales from Abroad: R...

Final Thoughts of an American Abroad Rachel Jones I’m trying to think of what I would be doing if I didn’t go to Study Abroad. What would I be doing right now? Probably working, at home, or spending time with friends- nothing close to seeing parts of the world I have never laid eyes on...

Tales from Abroad: A Summer in Europe Sep15

Tales from Abroad: A...

When people ask me to describe my month in Europe, I am consistently left at a loss for words. How do I succinctly describe a month in which I was challenged with new experiences, faced with big decisions, and out of my comfort zone every single day? It’s extremely difficult to summarize. In...

Tales From Abroad: E...

Study Abroad changed my life. Cliché, I know, but it’s nigh impossible to come up with any other way to put it. This semester has been a strenuous, wonderful, exhausting, and exhilarating experience. I have been constantly challenged, and had to adapt and grow in ways I didn’t feel possible...

Study Abroad is an experience like no else. I have grown and learned in so many new ways over this semester. I have learned what communal living is all about and how to love people in such close quarters. I have learned although you may not know the language of the country you are in,...
