Headed to Bordeaux!

Hi everyone, my name is Evans Johnson and I am a senior at The University. I have decided to spend my first semester in the beautiful city of Bordeaux, France at KEDGE University. I write this post as I sit waiting at the airport for the flight that will take me on my next adventure! This was a difficult decision for me as this would be last fall semester on campus. I had to make the terribly hard decision on whether to miss football...

Safari Before I Go

Returning home from South Africa was honestly heartbreaking. I enjoyed my experience immensely and could not believe how quickly the time passed. I was so glad I was able to check off something that was on my bucket list since I was a little girl: going on a safari!! This was the most compelling experience that initially attracted me to South Africa, and it was even more amazing than anything I could imagine. I saw a lion in its...

Zipper Pants for the Win!

I decided to study abroad this summer because I will be beginning my senior year this fall, and it will be my last opportunity as a student to have new academic and personal growth experiences outside the U.S. I have enjoyed studying abroad several different times while being a student at The University of Alabama and each one has led me to discover a new part of myself. I also have always wanted to visit South Africa as it has piqued...

How could you not? There is just so much to see and do; the Colosseum, the Trevi...

Life in Berlin

Studying abroad is an experience, and it’s one that has its ups and downs. Upon arrival, the airline lost all of my luggage. I came to Germany for the summer and had barely any personal belongings. Right from the get-go, I had to adapt to every possible scenario and situation. So far, every possible thing that could go wrong, has. But you learn to adapt and laugh at the chaos that surrounds you. I’ll be the first one to...

Reflections

I have been back for less than a week and I am still a little jetlagged. Only a few days until the semester starts and while I am shocked by how fast the summer flew by, I wouldn’t change what I did at all. The five and a half weeks I spent in Australia was absolutely fantastic. I got to see so many incredible things. As part of our Comparative Supreme Court class, we toured the Australian High Court. It was an impressive space to be...
