CAS '21 Phillip Lopez

Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Queen Mary, University of London

Ask me about...

  • A unique aspect of my experience was studying abroad as a FGLI student. 

My Experience Abroad:

As an International Relations major, I chose Europe as my region of focus. Studying abroad in London gave me a unique opportunity to take different classes focused on the history and integration of Europe throughout the twentieth century while exploring the continent. 

Other Highlights:

  • The greatest highlight of my experience abroad was having the opportunity to meet and connect with students from all over the US (and the world) that I otherwise never would have been able to meet. 

  • Another highlight of my experience was the accessibility I had to other parts of Europe. Travel fares were very cheap so I had the opportunity to do a good deal of traveling with my friends. 

  • Joining Queen Mary's boxing club and learning the technicals of boxing was also a highlight.
