In the Middle

One week down, one week to go. Warsaw was more amazing than I could have imagined. Going into the program, I was excited to see Warsaw, but it was never a place that I had planned to travel to. Warsaw blew me away with its wonderful people, architecture, and culture. The city was incredibly easy to get around, and the subway was by far the cleanest I had ever seen. With the exception of one shop owner, every local was nice and very...

The Danish love their shipping containers so much that we get to live...

I’m about 3 and 1/2 weeks out from my study abroad trip to Santiago, Chile. It’s getting closer and it’s getting more real. I chose to study abroad so that I could fully immerse myself into Spanish culture, in order to learn the language more fully. Luckily, with the help of scholarships from my affiliate program and from the Education Abroad office, program cost hasn’t been that much of an issue. However, it...
