Maximizing your time before coming home

"Whether you are doing a year-long or a semester program, the halfway point makes things a little bit trickier as you try to balance midterm school work and free time. Unfortunately, study abroad does not last forever, and before you know it, you will be boarding the flight to return home."  

Craig Skillman, Lima, Fall '14 & Sao-Paulo, Spring '15

Sunday, Day of Rest

"So far, my new friend, the FitBit ChargeHR, has tracked 104 flights of stairs, 23.6 miles, and 52,699 steps. For roughly 48 hours, I’d say we have made a dent in the calles of Venice. It’s hard to describe the feeling I’ve gotten from walking around Venice."   [read more]
