Adventures of the Seoul

Growing up, I was fascinated with Asian culture. I was intrigued by the unique cultural differences from the other side of the world.  As a global studies major, I was able to dive more in depth into learning about other countries and cultures. This is what sparked my drive to start my study abroad experience.  […]

Londinium Medley

What are the first things you think of when you hear the word London? What comes to your mind? Is it posh English men and women sipping on some Earl Grey while nibbling on a scone? Is it Queen Elizabeth walking her cute little corgis down the pavement (not sidewalk)? Or is it TV shows […]

Studio In Scandinavia

During the summer between my sophomore and junior years of high school, I had the incredible opportunity and privilege to compete in the Gothia and Dana Cups, two major world youth soccer tournaments in Sweden and Denmark. I was so enamored with Scandinavia during these months and I felt such a strong connection to it. I […]

A Croatia Chronicle

Very few things in the world can open up your mind to different ideas, cultures, cuisines, and history like traveling can. I constantly find myself yearning for my next adventure and reflecting on how my travels and experiences have shaped me into who I am as a person today. One of these adventures that I […]

Summer in Salamanca

At the young age of 8, I fell in love with the world and other cultures. I started begging my parents to let me travel anywhere and everywhere they would let me. Before college, I had already traveled abroad many times, so I knew that I wanted to Study Abroad to fully immerse myself into […]

To Barcelona and Beyond

There is one question I always dread when talking about my study abroad experience: where is your favorite place you visited? With all of the amazing, unique, and diverse cities I traveled to during the spring semester of 2017, how am I possibly supposed to choose? My home base was the beautiful city of Barcelona, […]

Spring Semester in the Big Smoke

121 days. 40 cities. 8 countries. 3 continents. 1 unbelievable experience. My experience abroad began in the same place where I spent most of my time; London, England. However, quickly, I realized due to the nature of my class schedule that I was able to spend most weekends traveling, and I began to do exactly […]

Paramount Poutine

My Outlook email pinged and I rushed to my laptop. I furiously clicked my email tab open, anxious for the message I had been waiting to read for weeks. And there it was. My acceptance letter granting me the opportunity to study abroad on the Provost Pre-Freshman Program to Montréal, Canada. I was overcome with […]

Bless the Rains Down in Africa

  When I decided to go abroad for an entire summer, I truly had no idea what was ahead of me. I knew I would miss home, but not to the extent that I did. I knew I would make new friends, but I never thought they would be some of the most amazing people […]

Leben in Wien

Studying abroad was something I had wanted to do since I was a little kid. I was fortunate enough to go on a 17-day program to China when I was 13, and a week-long study abroad program to Belize when I was 18. Both of these trips helped me rid of any doubt that I […]

Semester in the City of a Hundred Spires

When I came to Auburn for my freshman year, I had already decided that I was going to study abroad. I did not know where, but I knew I wanted to go for a whole semester and completely submerge myself in another culture. I had never been to Europe, so my love for history and […]

Living Lavishly in London

I cannot even begin to think about the amount of times that I have told my “study abroad story.” For countless weeks and months after I returned from my program I kept getting asked about my experience from friends and family. Honestly, I even got some facebook messages from people while studying abroad that kept […]
