SFS is Coming to YOU? As prospective students, many ask questions concerning the financial aspects of college. Parents and students all around the world wonder “Can I afford college now?”. And the answer to that question can be kind of tricky without the guidance of professionals. That is where Student Financial Service (SFS) swoops in […]
I spent my first Chinese New Year in China with my friend’s family in Suzhou. It was a whirl of friends, family, majiang, and lots and lots of food. Come with me as I experience the first day of the celebrations– New Year’s Eve.
Volcanic craters, fumeroles and hot springs mark the rugged landscape of São Miguel island, in the remote Portuguese Azores, where undergraduate students from WashU traveled to study field geology techniques during their 2018 spring break.
I spent this past semester studying in Florence, Italy with the Sam Fox School Communication Design program, which was an amazing experience to say the least! Due to bad wifi, I couldn’t continue my Photo of the Week posts, but to make it up here’s a highlight reel from the past 4 months! […]
Hi everyone! Earlier this month, I interviewed my friend, David, who studied abroad in Spain last semester. Today, I would like to share with you more pictures of him on this incredible journey. As the saying goes, a pictures is worth a thousand words! Now, how about 16 pictures of David?
Hey guys! So last week, I interviewed my friend Kate again on her study abroad experience. This week, I decided to follow-up with another one of my friends, David, on his trip. David also studied abroad in Spain during the spring semester. He went there as a junior and took business courses in Madrid. Some friends and I actually just celebrated his birthday a few days ago! David is one of the most outgoing, goofiest, and dorkiest friends that I have. So of course, I took this as the perfect opportunity to check up with him on his journey!
Last semester, I interviewed two of my good friends, Kate and David, who both studied abroad in Spain during the spring semester. Kate is one of my roommates this year—and I decided to interview again to follow-up on her experience. Now that she is back on campus, it is interesting to see how exactly studying abroad has changed her as a person as well as what her experiences have taught her.
So one of the things that most worried me about going abroad was that I would officially be responsible for my own meals and budgeting. Up until this point I had always been on the WashU meal plan – even if it was always the smallest plan available – and that usually curbed the bulk […]
So while I was going to my different classes today, my friends and I got on the topic of trying new things. What with being in a new country, a new city, a new culture, and among new people, it seems natural to try as many new things as possible before we inevitably have to […]
So class has started today. It was a nice weekend but, of course, they never last as long as you want them to and before I knew it I was back in class getting lectured at again. I finished before 1 though so I was able to come back and just relax, get some food […]
So I just realized that I haven’t really talked about my living situation while I’m studying abroad and it occurred to me – super late in the game, as per the usual – that other students might be interested in this. So here’s the situation: I’m living in an apartment with four other kids my […]
So I was posting a little sporadically for the last two weeks (as in barely at all) and I’m sorry about that. So much stuff was happening that I lost track of the last time I had posted and before I knew it, 10 or so days had gone by. But now I have some […]
I’ve done it. I’ve actually done it. I survived Intensive Czech. Today was the last day of our three hour Czech language classes and – even though I really appreciated the class and actually have become more interested in learning functional Czech, or what I like to call “Taxi Czech” – I’m also relieved that […]
