Ball is Life

by Paige

Back in High School, my orchestra put on this event called "Swinging in Vienna." It was a formal dance where the orchestra would play waltzes and the jazz band would play swing music. At this time, I had no idea why we named our dance after Vienna. It was not until looking into studying abroad here that I discovered that Vienna is known for having Balls!

THE Original Snowglobe

by Paige

Everywhere I travel, I have always purchased a snowglobe to remember my time. Last January, I did some traveling around Europe and brought home 4 snowglobes. After struggling to get all those home, I decided to tone it back a bit during my study abroad. So far I have only purchased one snowglobe and I could not be happier with the story behind it.

Around the World

by Paige

I come from a very small college where there isn't a lot to do on the weekends. In Vienna, there is no shortage of activites. However after a hard week of courses, sometimes you just want to get away and take a break. One of my favorite things about Vienna, is how central the location is! Traveling and seeing the rest of the world has never been easier! There are so many options and places to see, why not travel why you are in Europe?

A Second Family

by Paige

For me, the scariest part of going abroad or going to college for the first time, is finding out who I will be living with. When I was a freshman, I was terrified of living with another person I didn't know and that fear followed me to Vienna. Right before I arrived, I found out the name of the 5 strangers who I would be sharing an apartment with for the next 5 months. I have been here for 2 months now, and I would not change anything about my living situtaiton.
