Berlin Take One

November 26, 2017

Song: “First Blood” by Kavinsky

So, back from the dead, I have the first of many videos to show you! In this video, I’ll be showing some of the activities I got up to in my first week abroad! Now, with it being almost December it may seem like an odd choice to show my first week, but as you may have realized this is only my second upload so why not continue where I left off? In this video I show my arrival to Berlin and some of the sights I found to be the most interesting. The transportation system here in Berlin is really something I’m going to miss back in the States, as it is run well and can get you anywhere in the city with ease. I attempted to capture a more “every day” experience for the most part, except for my Host’s Friend’s birthday party towards the middle. I have another video I’m finishing up now all about one of Germany’s main events: Oktoberfest. After that I’m thinking that some videos will focus on Museums and Art here in Berlin, some of the incredibly exciting nightlife and the upcoming winter markets! Until then though, I hope you enjoy some of the first videos I took here in Berlin!

Rome, Week 8

by Briana Maddox

It’s hard to believe that one more week has passed by and there’s only one week left of the program. It feels like we just landed yesterday, and everything went by in the blink of an eye. Sounds cliche as all hell, but it’s true.

Why Study Abroad In the Summer

by Shea

If you are like me, you may have a lot of questions about studying abroad in the summer. Is it too short? Is it enough time to travel? Do you get full credits for the courses you take? Are there less places and courses to choose from? Do you get the full experience of being abroad?

Ebb and Flow

by Erin

I feel like pinching myself when I say it, but I miss home a lot. It’s so hard to admit it to myself. How could I possibly want this wonderful trip to end? It seems ungrateful, and whiny.
