Studying in Seoul Forest

I mentioned Seoul Forest in a post before and that day, my friends and I thoroughly explored the area. But this Sunday, it was a nice day and we wanted to rest this weekend so we decided to get some of our homework done at the park. Just as a quick note, I know I’ve ...

And The Countdown Begins

“A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it” – George Moore It’s really hard to believe that 3 months flew by that quickly. I remember thinking during my first few weeks here that this program was never going to end, and then I went through ...

The Finals Are Near

The last week to the end of the Bochum program. This was the calm before the storm. We began to wrap up our lab reports and independent lab project before we could start studying for our finals. Our Heat Transfer professor, Dr. Wrenn, and our Fluid Mechanics professor, Dr. Pollack, told us what we needed ...

Hanyang University School Festival Part 2

Day 2 of the festival was the biggest day, as pop group Black Pink with millions of fans was coming to our university. Right after class, my friends went to explore the festival a little and discovered some booths here and there that gave out free things, such as Starbucks drinks, candy, and so on, ...

Finding Caribbean Roots in London

“A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots” – Marcus Garvey If you’re a person of Caribbean decent , then you are most likely well aware of the history that many West Indian islands have with Great Britain. But if not, the British Empire once ...

Tech Struggles and Comfort Food

This was probably my most aggravating week here. On my last day in Munich, my computer showed its initial signs of failure. It kept stating that its charging percentage was at 0% and it took three tries to turn on the computer and show a display (Figure 1). When I returned home to Bochum, my ...

***The Office of International Programs strongly discourages Drexel travelers from participating in any type of protest abroad as these events are unpredictable and can often quickly turn violent. Students are reminded that they must abide by local laws, even if they are not aware of the specifics of these laws and violation of such laws ...

Hanyang University School Festival Part 1

Most schools in Korea have a bi-annual festival, lasting around 3 days. In concept, it’s a little similar to Drexel’s spring jam, but a lot, lot bigger. Clubs organize their own “bars”, selling food or other merchandise. The university invites food trucks and celebrities to perform through out the festival. It’s a great time to ...

A Break and Trek through Western and Eastern Europe

The great holiday week began with a turbulent start. I spent two hours after we were working on our lab report packing my luggage. I did not pay attention to the fact that the local U-bahn trains alter their schedules based on the time of day and I did not even think about when to ...

Exploring Sinchon (Escape room, archery cafe, arcade)

I’ve been to Sinchon for a little bit a few times before but I wasn’t able to really make a lasting impression until now, when my friends and I spent the day exploring. Now I wonder why I haven’t spent as much time in this neighborhood. As someone trying to go out and experience as ...
