How to Maximize your Time at CIMBA 06/20/17

Managing time: Now managing time might seem like something easy but when you are abroad in another country it’s a lot different than being at home. One big difference is that when you arrive in Italy there is a large time difference, 6 hours for me and 7 hours for many others. When arriving on […]

Friends that Will Last a Lifetime 06/20/17

How Studying Abroad Will Turn You From a Diva to a Minimalist 05/25/17

When I was first told that it wasn’t a good idea for me to bring more than one suitcase and my backpack abroad, I thought it would be impossible. But I nearly lost my mind when I realized that said suitcase could only be 50 pounds. However, after sifting, sorting, an all nighter, and a […]

Why Studying Abroad is Good for You 05/15/17

As college students, we sure engage in a lot of behavior that is less than ideal for our still developing minds and bodies. We live off more caffeinated drinks than we do hours of sleep, are quick to get pizza and wings delivered to the library as a midnight snack, and drown ourselves in social […]

Say “YES!” to the random place you never thought you would ever go to. Budapest definitely wasn’t on […]
