Honors Abroad

  Choosing to study abroad was easily one of the best decisions I have made in my life thus far, but I’m pretty sure you will hear that from anyone who studies abroad or visits Europe in general. So what I’d like to talk about is studying abroad with the Honors College. This summer I studied at Worscester College – that’s pronounced “wuhster” by the way – for a month with the UA in Oxford program. This program is not...

Coming to an End

As my month in Ireland comes to an end, I can’t help but to think back on all of the things I have seen and done.

Home Sweet Home

By the last week I was so ready to get home and see my friends, family, dog, and to chow down on some Chick-fil-a. It wasn’t until the last day of classes when our teachers started to say their goodbyes that I actually realized that I was sad about leaving. It was hard saying goodbye to the friends I met, but I am excited to see them all when I get back to Tuscaloosa. The flight was about 9 hours and I spent the last hour watching the...
