09/25/2017 Glamorous Excuse To Travel Europe DIS Copenhagen: Semester

"Didn't change my life. Danish culture is very similar to western culture and everyone speaks English, so it won't "change your life" or make you grow. It might, however, be the best time of your life. Program isn't rigorous so it's possible to travel every weekend and see Europe, but you won't feel any attachment to Denmark. Sta..."

08/12/2017 Integrating Into A Culturally Rich Country DIS Copenhagen: Summer

"I learned to appreciate the culture and enjoy the day as it comes rather than trying to figure out the future constantly. Danes like hygge, which can be understood as comfort, and it was very apparent in the city and the way people acted. There were blankets on every chair in an open cafe and there was no sense of rushing to eve..."

08/04/2017 Take Ii: Copenhagen After Sweden DIS Copenhagen: Semester

"I feel far more globally aware as a result of my time abroad. The term "global citizen" is quite corny to consider when talking about yourself when you return from being abroad. Nonetheless, it is quite true. Being abroad undoubtedly allowed me to question at times both the culture I come from and the culture I was visiting. ..."

07/19/2017 Dis Spring Semester Review DIS Copenhagen: Semester

"I learned that I was much stronger than I thought; that I could move to a foreign country and within four months make it into a home, with friends and meaningful events in my life that I wouldn't have had if I stayed home. I learned how to travel, and how essential it is to travel and see new places and people. "
