    This is my life so far and I love it. Can I stay forever? I’m going to try to keep this in chronological order but more than likely I’ll stray from the point.   Read More...

  • Caroline, outbound to Belgium

    Being on exchange is everything I expected it to be and nothing like I expected it to be all at the same time. Before I left the states, people constantly asked me "Why Belgium?", like they couldn't think of any plausible reason why someone would want to "lose a year" just to study in Belgium.

    My first week in Spain!!!!!!!  I have been in Spain for a total of three days!!!! Honestly these past days have been the weirdest, yet most exciting days of my life.

  • Keely, outbound to South Korea

    Protip, never flush your toilet paper in Korea without asking if you can unless you want to be responsible for a broken toilet.  I'm going to skip the story of how my flights were because everything went pretty much according to plan. I left with a smile on my face, ready to leave, and I landed with an even bigger smile, ready to start my exchange. Now, I gave you that wonderful advice about the toilets because I, on my first day, broke my host family’s toilet.   Read More...
