Spanish School

Among all the other wonderful experiences that come with studying abroad, there is also a lot to be learned in the classroom. Not only did I learn so much more about the material covered in the classes that I took, it also really deepened my cultural experience. Being a business major, I took international business and Spanish culture and civilization while abroad. The University I studied at was tailored to students studying abroad....

Abroad in Prague

Academics: I am studying at Anglo American University. It is a small, private university that is taught all in English and located right near the city center. AAU is absolutely beautiful. The interior is filled with intricate molding work and large chandeliers. When I’m there, I feel like I’m in a castle or a fancy house, not a school. For the first three weeks, I took The Legacies of Totalitarianism: Post-Totalitarian Europe. It was...

Finally back to the States

Having spent 5 weeks in Germany, I felt that I wanted to stay longer, but alas I had to return to prepare for fall classes. The travel back home ended up being somewhat of a nightmare.

Then, due to going the cheap route on tickets, I spent 12 hours in the Dublin...

Coming Home!

I think that I may have had the most crazy series of return flights back the United States!

I left Madrid on a Friday afternoon and flew to Paris. My flight...

Motivation for Studying Abroad in Florence Italy

Ciao, My name is Noah Dasinger and for the fall semester of 2018, I will be studying at the Lorenzo de Medici Institute, in Florence Italy. The motivation for deciding to study abroad has to do with my major which is art history and my interest in Renaissance Art. At 14 years old I traveled to Florence, it was my first time in Europe and when I turned northeast and saw the Duomo of the city, never before had my eyes seen beauty of...

Shakespeare in Italy: Reverse Culture Shock

Howdy Friends, It’s me again. I am back safely in Texas after a nearly flawless airport experience and have never been more excited to see my dog (and family, of course) in my life. The dream of a month long adventure through Italy has sadly come to a stuttering halt. Each week I was there seemed to go faster and faster, until the whole month was up and suddenly here I am, back at home with uninterrupted internet connection and...
