Meaghan Powers

Name: Meaghan Powers

HostCountry: Italy

Program: Kent State/GW Florence Business Program

What are you most looking forward to about studying abroad? I am most looking forward to immersing myself in the Italian culture by practicing their language and carrying out my day to day life as locals do. I also hope to spread my experience through not just Florence, but all of Italy and Europe while I have this opportunity.

Rob Klecanda

Name: Rob Klecanda

Host Country: Austria

Program: IES Vienna: European Society & Culture

What are you most looking forward to about studying abroad? While abroad in Vienna I hope to broaden my horizons, meet new people, and get in touch with my roots. As an International Business & Finance major, one of the goals I have set for myself in college is to learn a language fluently (or as fluently as possible), and German is one of the most important languages in the business world today. Having started at GW, I plan to get more of an outside the classroom experience and completely immerse myself in the language. Vienna is also the birthplace of my Grandfather, and by studying here I hope to discover a part of my heritage and establish a greater connection with my family.
