Everything has been magical – from eating Belgian waffles on my walk to class in the morning, to visiting World War […]

Ian Woller Proves the Cliches of Studying Abroad Are True With Reason

Cliché study abroad sentence #1: If you told me the first day that I arrived in Spain the experiences I would have had up to this point, I wouldn’t have believe anything you said. I remember perfectly the day of travel that I endured to get to Pamplona, a small city in the heart of […]

Business Professional in the City of Light Part II | Laura Hoyos
