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...

  Beautiful Buchenwald One of my favorite places that I had the opportunity of visiting in Germany was the Buchenwald campsite, which I thought was an interesting and conflicting place. Unlike most other concentration camps used by the Germans for their prisoners, who were imprisoned in...

Cultures. How do we differentiate one from another? The most common answers are the music and dancing, the food, and the religions and celebrations observed. Before I came to Uruguay, I would have said the same thing. However, as I traveled around in South America, I began to form a different...

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...

My trip to Germany has taught me much about German culture, but also about teaching ESL children. Teaching in the German schools was a difficult experience! I could hardly communicate with them while teaching the lesson because of the language barrier. The best thing to do was learn key words...
