Day In the Life: Graphic Design Student in London

Starting around 8am, a typical class day in London for me typically starts off with a coffee or café drink of some kind. I’ve always tried my best to make some sort of breakfast, but I usually will just grab a pick me up from my favorite cafes. I usually go to Pret, which is ...

Brick Lane: Multiculturalism & Street Art

For my British Life & Visual Media course, we often take field trips and guided tours to have a better grasp on British culture. For one of our classes sessions, we took a tour of Brick Lane which is a long street located in East London. Since the first time I went there I was ...

Not Enough Time

It feels like just last week that I had nearly 4 months to spend in Italy and do everything I wanted to do. The time went by so quickly. I now have less than 40 days left here and there is so much that I still want to do. I have more trips planned that ...

On Saturday….we have classes!

I woke up in sheer horror this past Saturday morning to a text from one of my classmates in my French class stating that our French class was half way through. It was 12 noon, I had just woken up, recovering from the long week of assessments and sleepless nights I endured during the week, ...

Reflection on My Time Abroad in Florence

My time studying in Florence, Italy, has been truly incredible, and I have seen and experienced so much, not only in Italy but in countries across Europe. I could not have hoped for or imagined a better semester. Although it is difficult to say in words all the things that I learned, I think it ...

Quizzes, Assignments, and Projects, Oh My!

So far, my time here in Australia has been nothing short of amazing. However, the semester is almost half way done which means deadlines and exams are slowly approaching. For the past few weekends, I’ve had the opportunity to do small weekend trips around the area to places like Byron Bay, the Blue Mountains, and ...

The Classroom Experience at Hanyang University

Study abroad is all fun, but there is still the study portion to keep in mind.  Through the Hanyang University International Summer School program, I need to take three classes to stay a full-time student at Drexel.  This means I am taking three, three-hour classes from 9 am to 7 pm (with a one-hour lunch ...

Heather in Rennes: Université Rennes 2

Just like at Drexel, the classes at my university in France start a little late, towards the end of September. The university that I attend is called Université Rennes 2 (Rennes 2 for short). It is the liberal arts school in Rennes, whereas Université Rennes 1 is the STEM-focused school, and is located on a ...

Heather in Rennes: Preliminary Language & Culture Course

Before coming to Rennes, one of my biggest fears was taking classes entirely in French. After all, I’d never taken more than four hours of French classes per week, and I was about to jump into a schedule where I could be taking four hours of french classes each day, not to mention speaking French ...

Classes at HKUST

For this blog, I’m going to stop talking about how much fun I’m having in Hong Kong and speak about my classes. Studying abroad isn’t just about exploring the country you’re living in; it’s about advancing your education and learning more about yourself as a student. I have been here for a month now and ...
