Overall Experience
I gained an appreciation of the Welsh language and culture and was inspired to write my honors thesis on a very Welsh subject - Dewi Sant. It was worthwhile, but I was disappointed by the lack communication and lack of recognition of my Study Abroad status by the University. There were some issues with the lecturers as well; one... - Austin College
Living abroad for several months, no matter where you go, is an eye-opening experience. It reminds you that the US is not the center of the universe and, trust me, you will hear a lot about what people think about the states! (both good and bad). Exposure to another country is so important & I think anyone who possibly can shoul... - Fordham University

Barcelona – week 15
I should title this post “Stockholm- week 15,” but I figured I would stay with the pattern. Also, unfortunately, the system wouldn’t let me upload pictures to this blog, so I apologize for the lack of visuals. Stockholm was everything I dreamed it would be and more. What a beautiful city!

So here I am, at 2:00pm on a Tuesday, wearing sweatpants for […]
