Last semester, fall 2015, I spent in Germany at a partner university. During my time there, I got to visit a few different countries and only stayed at my host university three weekends. I was able to have the experience of a lifetime.
This past summer, I spent six weeks in the Dominican Republic, with Professor Serrata.(The faculty-led program) I stayed with a host family in Santo Domingo, which is the capital of the DR, and my host mom was amazing!
Being able to study abroad in the UAE was the best experience ever. I come from an Arab family, but I never had the opportunity to actually visit the Middle East. When I decided I wanted to study abroad, I already knew exactly where I wanted to go: Dubai.
This summer was a series of excitement, challenges, exploration, enjoyment, failures, and victories.
My time abroad was incredible largely because of my incredible host family experience. My Spanish parents, Roberto and María Angeles, don't have children of their own, but host international students year round in their flat.
My experience abroad was eye opening and life changing. I went to a part of the world where many people view is horrible and unsafe, but I see it as another home.
My study abroad experience was everything I imagined it would be, and more. I was in awe when I was finally able to see the amazing Ancient Roman monuments and architecture in person, rather than only in pictures on the internet and in magazines.
During my time in Oslo, the program took me to government facilities, field trips, and hiking excursions all to help me better understand the Norwegian lifestyle.
My name is Meghan Augsburger and I am a Senior majoring in International Relations and minoring in German. This summer I studied abroad in Rwanda for 3 weeks with Global Youth Connect and their partner, The New School of Eugene Lang College in NYC.
"The world has so much to teach. And when you let yourself soak up the knowledge, culture, and laughter of others, you learn more about yourself than you ever thought was possible. The 7 weeks I lived in Ghana were some of the best weeks of my life..."
