Quando A Roma Part II With Adam Bendell

The culture of Rome is one that I have never experienced before. While Romans have   adapted their lives to first world technologies and innovations, they still retain their old rooted Italian traditions. Across almost every function of life, whether that be running a business or shopping for groceries, they still abide by their ancestor’s cultural […]

Carly Wraps Up Her Semester in Brussels With Her #onlyabroad Moments

How am I already writing my second blog post? Where did the time go? I never knew it was possible to feel like you’ve been in a place forever and simultaneously a millisecond.

It is located on the Vrije Universiteit Brussel campus, a Dutch speaking university. Many of the students that attend VeCo are from Belgium, have at least […]

Quando A Roma

My name is Adam Bendell, a Junior from Roslyn, NY.  After being given the opportunity to study Mandarin, learn about the Chinese business environment and intern in China, I knew that for my study abroad experience, I wanted something different.

I know many students are attracted to this city for its vibrant nightlife, but by being able to balance the nightlife with everything my […]
