MBA, BA Chemistry, BA Biology
Volleyball, DZ, having fun!
Where did you study?
London and Paris
Name of program
Why did you choose to study there?
I've never traveled out of North America. I thought that
London would be an easy transition into traveling abroad
because there wouldn't be a huge language barrier. The
Paris trip was the week following, and well, who
wouldn't want to go see the Eiffel Tower?!
What courses did you choose to enroll
We met with large companies to study International
How did you pay for your study abroad
Scholarship and Student Loans
Did you use some sort of financial
aid, scholarship or fellowship?
What was your living situation?
For both trips, we stayed in very nice hotels. They were
close to the train or bus stations and had wifi.
What did you do for fun?
London--Pubs were all the rage in London, each one
offers a different environment and menu. Picadilly
Circus was also a fun place to walk around and shop.
Paris--The Eiffel, of course, was a great place to sit, sip a glass of
wine, and people watch!
Favorite aspect of your trip?
My favorite part of the trip was the amount of free time
we had to explore the city. Each afternoon or evening my
friends and I had a new adventure.
Challenges you faced?
In Paris, language was a bit of an issue. I don't speak
any French, so simple tasks like ordering from a menu or
reading a street sign were much more challenging.
Advice or helpful tips for future
Pack, then take out about half of what you packed!
Taking a huge suitcase up and down the subway stairs is
not fun, especially when you're in a large crowd!
What is one thing (if anything) that
you would change about your experience if you could do
Nothing! I lucked out with beautiful weather in London
(it only sprinkled on us once) and Paris.
