Sleepless in Minneapolis

by Haley

Two. Days. Two days!! That's all I have left before I leave for Spain! I have been anticipating studying abroad for YEARS and the time is almost here! I honestly don't quite know what to expect. I am so excited, nervous, and rushing to make sure everything is ready for departure that I can barely sleep.

Reflections From Studying Abroad

by Michael

Studying abroad in Barcelona has been a truly interesting experience for me. Some of what I expected went as I thought, and some of what I expected did NOT go as I thought. As strange as this may sound, I am relieved to be done studying abroad. However, this is not to say that I wouldn’t do it over again.

Preparing for Departure

by Mary

I’m standing in the middle of my room in Long Island, New York, and the floor is nowhere to be seen. Piles of clothes, shoes, bags, and toiletries are strewn across the room and conceal the hardwood flooring beneath them. Soon I will consolidate everything into 3 suitcases and the floor will be spotless. My packing will have to be very strategic in order to fit everything. In addition, I plan to leave space in my suitcases to bring back souvenirs for family and friends.
