Patrick in Paris: « Méthodologie de Sciences Po »

Bonjour à tous ! As per the tags and my previous posts, you may know that the name of the school I am studying abroad at is “Sciences Po,” which is short for “l’Institut d’études politiques de Paris,” or in English, “the Paris Institute of Political Studies” (which is quite a mouthful and why everyone ...

cafés & school trips

Now that we are back in Florence for a few weeks, I have made it my mission to find the perfect study spot in between classes. There are a bunch of cafes along the street where Accademia is, but some are better suited for working. Because my computer has been broken, I have to work ...

Reading Week Woes

My picture is from London’s West End. I can’t believe it’s almost christmas! When I first checked my syllabi for three of my four modules here at the University of Sheffield, I realized there was such a thing as a reading week; a week where the departments do not have any classes and is supposed ...

Milan Fashion Week (Part II)

The next morning, we started at the Monumentale, which was a huge cemetery in Milan. Even though cemeteries are usually very eerie, this one was more of a monumental place.

Cliffs of Moher and Authentic American Food

If there is anything I can advise about going to Ireland, it is GO TO THE CLIFFS OF MOHER. I don’t care if you’re only in the country for a couple of hours and only have one thing to see, this is it. Our tour included a couple of different cliffs on the way and ...

Cheers: First week in London

It’s surreal to think that it took less than 2 hours for a new adventure to begin. Early in the morning on July 29th, all of the Drexel in Paris/London students coincidentally took the same train to our next destination, London. Once we checked into our new place we met our brand new roommates who were ...

THREE | Orientation Day at HWR (Berlin School of Economics and Law)

Monday, 27.6.2016 Early Morning “Wait, where are we going?” Silence. “Does anyone know where we’re going?” More silence. It’s already 9:30am and we have to be at school by 10:00am. Then, one of the fifteen students cheered, “I got it! We’re taking the U7 towards Rudow and getting off at Bayerische Platz.” Thank you, student whose ...
