Assigned academic areas: Art & Design, Informatics

Major: Ceramics, French; Minor: Art History, Book Arts

Study Abroad country(ies) and program: Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria - Exploring Art in Central Europe and France - French Language Studies (I did both programs in the same summer!)

Favorite part of study abroad experience: I loved being able to use the cities I studied in as the classroom. Whether it was drawing and sketching in the streets for our studio art assignments, interacting and speaking the (French) language with locals, or just going out to people watch and soak in the culture. I learned so much more about the world we live in by studying abroad and what it really means to be a global citizen.
