Friends that Will Last a Lifetime 06/20/17

As I’ve said before, I’m the only one from my university who attended this program. With that being said, that has been one of my favorite parts about studying abroad. From week one, the group of people I met and became friends with were all from different universities. I think that was great because it […]

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 […]

Arrivederci Italy! 04/21/17

If I were to write down every thought I have had since being home, this post would be around 100 pages long. I have had a roller coaster of emotions going on. From happiness of seeing my family and getting to sleep in my own bed to sadness of leaving all the amazing friends behind […]

The 5 Types of Friends In Your Study Abroad Travel Group 02/24/17

One of the best parts about studying abroad in Europe is the opportunity to travel to a new place almost every weekend. But traveling wouldn’t be nearly as exciting if it weren’t for the people that you are able to share it with. So while the scenery, the food, and the history of wherever you […]

Caught Off Guard: Why it’s Impossible to be Fully Prepared for Study Abroad 02/07/17

In the months leading up to my semester abroad, it felt like I’d done nothing but prepare. I renewed my passport, read articles written by students studying abroad in Italy (including the CIMBA blog, of course), downloaded the app Duolingo to learn some Italian, connected with classmates on social media, attended the CIMBA program orientation, […]

A New Beginning: Reflections on my Time Abroad 07/11/16

As I pulled away from the Bassano train station, I realized this was my last endeavor as a college student. Going forward, I’m no longer surrounded by students of similar interest who are on the same journey as I am. Now I’ve realized Carlson School of Management at the University of Minnesota has built a great […]
