By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you decide to study abroad in Leuven, Belgium? I know Leuven isn’t a typical choice, but I wanted to be somewhere that would push me outside my comfort zone. It turns out that Leuven is basically a huge college town and the Belgians know how to have a great time! 2) What has been your most fun or interesting experience so far? One of my favorite experiences so far was picnicking on a hill overlooking the Hapsburg Palace in Vienna with BC members Kevin Maxson, Paula Wangadi, Noelle Busch, and Elisa Ambrose.

By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you choose to study abroad in Madrid, Spain?

By Brigid McCann 1) Why did you choose to study abroad in Milan, Italy? I chose Milan because I really like Italy and wanted the chance to see as much of this country as possible. Also, I wanted to take the 321 equivalent but they no longer offer it sadly. 2) What has been your most fun or interesting experience so far? By far Dublin! The cliffs of Moher are honestly so breathtaking. They were slightly terrifying because at one point we had to climb over a fence and the wind was blowing so much that we were falling over. The the […]

I wanted to join a very friendly, sociable group of students who are also very professional and inspiring. Ultimately, I wanted to be surrounded by motivational, driven individuals. Joe:  I am really interested in the […]
