SA: Penn Semester in Lyon

Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Penn Semester in Lyon, France

Ask me about...

  • Taking classes in a foreign language

  • Solo travel

  • Finding new communities abroad

  • Adjusting to a new culture

My Experience Abroad:

As a pre-med BBB major, I chose to take mostly elective courses and one science course for my major. Taking electives allowed me to explore subjects simply because they interested me and were topics I knew nothing about.

Other Highlights:

  • Meeting some incredible new people

  • The Festival of Lights in December

  • Penn Weekend Excursions

  • Flying all around Europe
