Destination Spotlight: Dover, Kent, England

Dover, Kent, England. In my entire life, I never imagined I would have the opportunity to travel to Dover.  But there I was, early one Thursday morning, packing to travel across the English Channel to visit the famous town. After class, my best friend and I made our way to Maastricht station, in order to board a train to Brussels, where we’d be taking the Chunnel under the English Channel. I had coffee in my system and food in my tummy, I was set.

During my first few weeks in Europe, my friends and I spent our trips running from one monument to the next, trying to see it all. We accomplished almost everything we wanted to on the weekends and we saw nearly … [Read more...]

Study Abroad Tips: Navigating the Differences Between the United States and Europe

On my flight to Amsterdam last week, I tried to dream up how different Europe would be from the United States. I was surprised to find its VERY different. From the landscape, the houses, the people, the mannerisms, even the way they travel, the differences are everywhere. When my advisors said "watch out for culture shock," I never have anticipated that I would be that one student who is shocked wherever she goes. Some differences in culture: There is no Air Conditioning in Europe, maybe you'll find a hotel or hostel with it, but there is none in academic buildings and none in my room. … [Read more...]
