Engaging in the International Classroom

Traveling for class is a foreign concept to us. Sure, we may walk a few minutes to class, or even commute to campus, but traveling to a place normally visited for leisure with the purpose of taking classes is different to me. Therefore, I feel as though it didn’t really set in that we are ...

My Favorites in London

As the end draws near, I’d like to reflect on my top five favorite places to go in London. Whether it be a restaurant or a park, I’d like to try and spend more time at these places within the last week of my stay. Here are some great places that you must add to ...
