Ask me about...

  • Figuring out housing when not placed in dorms

My Experience Abroad:

I took two communication classes to fulfill the 200-level communication major requirement as well as an East Asian Languages and Civilizations course that I will use as a cognate course for my communication major.

Other Highlights:

  • Making friends with my roommates and exploring the nearby neighborhoods with them

  • Figuring out housing, moving

  • Using free time to reflect and learn more about myself

  • Experiencing loneliness and homesickness for the first time (yes, a highlight - I learned a lot)
