While studying abroad is something college students dream about, some schools offer two week courses abroad in either the winter or summer that give you a sample size of the complete experience individuals get in either a fall or spring semester.
I attend Bryant University, and they offer Sophomore International Experience (SIE), a roughly 2 week long trip that counts as a 3 credit course, giving the experience of a foreign culture, while also displaying the global environment of education. I have had countless friends who have gone on this trip, and almost all of them ended up studying abroad in their junior year. For many of my friends, it was their first time traveling outside the country, and was an eye opening experience for them, and was the reason they committed to going abroad for a full semester.

Navigating London was something I genuinely loved doing. Getting lost was a thrill to me, and I always had a map handy just in case. However, in order to fit into this elaborate and diverse culture, I realized there was more I had to do. After some time, I got mistaken for a Londoner by tourists who came to the city from all over the world. The moment I opened my mouth and they found out I was American, they would kind of stare at me for a while as I navigated them to their destination without looking at a map. So, if you’d like to exude the confidence of being mistaken for a local, here are 6 things you need to know! (more…)
Prague, Czech Republic – A modern day fairy tale city where the beer flows cheaper than water. I could write about the Pražský orloj (Prague Astronomical Clock) in Old Town Square, or the “Walk of Apostles” that takes place at two o’clock everyday, or Pražský hrad (Prague Castle), which is most accessible via the Karlův most (Charles Bridge), but I won’t because instead I’m going to write about the food, the beer, the wine, and the markets.

For my last two years of high school and first two years at university, I had the opportunity to travel to Panama City, Panama. I went to teach students from all over the world how to be strong debate leaders and successful students. It was a great experience that taught me how to be a responsible student and made me want to continue my field in Education. While visiting Panama, I fell in love with the scenery. It has beautiful beaches, skyscraper buildings, history on every corner, and wonderful street art. While being there, I found some places I HAD to return to that have now become my go-to places.
