Going Dutch- Experiencing What Amsterdam is Really Like

In high school, I competitively competed in policy debate. This meant spending my summers at debate camps and traveling across the country to compete against other high school teams. Then, two years ago, I chose to go to GW because of its location and have spent some time interning on Capitol Hill and at the Federal Reserve. Based on these experiences and from what I read in numerous guidebooks, I was very confident and sure that I would be able to quickly acclimate to studying abroad.

Living La Vie Parisienne

It’s been an entire week since I’ve arrived in Paris, France! That is incredibly hard to believe, as I feel like I’ve done so much already, both as part of my program and on my own. I’m participating in GW’s Paris Fall Business Program, designed exclusively for GWSB students. That means you! Settling in over the past week has been a very interesting process, and it applies to a myriad of things – meeting my classmates, figuring out my neighborhood, and integrating myself into the French culture. In total, there are nineteen students from GW participating in the program, all taking three GW Business courses (Marketing, Finance, and Human Resources) and two electives.  READ MORE

Getting to live and study in another country, surrounded by new people and different culture, has already been an amazing experience and I am sure that it will only continue to get better. Because I have a lot that I want to tell you, but I don’t want to bog you down with pages and pages of stories, I am just going to give you a glimpse of what studying abroad at University of Sydney has been like. READ MORE
