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. Wasn’t it yesterday that I pulled up to the SleepWell hostel in downtown Brussels, six hours late to orientation thanks to delayed […]

Oxford Academics, First Impressions, and Euro Travels with Greg Lidrbauch

A lot has happened since January, and I have been lucky enough to both complete my first term at Oxford, and get in about six weeks of traveling. One of the main differences between the Oxford system of instruction and that of GW is that Oxford operates on a trimester schedule with eight weeks of […]

The Belgium Experience Part II | Christian Ying

One of the best parts about studying abroad in Belgium is the fact that there are so many cities to see within Belgium. My program, CIEE really made an effort about explaining the cultural differences within Belgium and wanted to expand our knowledge beyond Brussels by taking us on day trips all around Belgium. Here […]

Hello, Goodbye, and Peace – Shalom from Tel Aviv!

Although I’m not trying to make you jealous, while most of you are sitting in cold DC, I’m writing to you from beautiful and sunny Tel Aviv, Israel! For those of you who don’t know me my name is Dani Wolberger and I’m a junior studying Business Economics & Public Policy and decided to spend […]

Ian Woller Learns How to Make the Most of His Time Abroad

Forgive me if I sound a little upset for the duration of this blog; just as I thought we had begun the transition from brutal Pamplona winter to summer (they kind of skip spring here it seems), we’ve had a serious setback over the last couple of days. I think it’s safe to say I […]

The Belgium Experience | Christian Ying

Living in Brussels, Belgium has been an eye-opening experience thus far. I am studying at Vesalius College (VeCo). It is a very small undergraduate college with only 300 students. 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 […]

Aussie Adventures With Pavi

Living in Gold Coast, Australia has been an incredibly surreal experience thus far. I’m studying at Bond University, a small private school of about 3,000 students. Australian society and culture is pretty similar to American culture, which has made it easy to describe these cities to friends and family back home! I’d say Gold Coast […]

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 wanted my abroad experience to diversify my knowledge of the global marketplace, rather than […]
