I studied abroad in Vienna, Austria in Spring of 2020! Going into study abroad, I only knew one other person going on the trip. However, after just a few days in Vienna, I gained two of my best friends. Vienna offers so many amazing things. Through studying abroad, I became more independent and discovered how to better manage my time. During abroad, we would complete all of our homework before the weekend so that we could just enjoy traveling. That schedule has continued now that I am back on-campus, and my time management skills have greatly improved. Vienna is such an amazing city to live in! The public transportation is the most convenient and easy to use system I have ever experienced with an underground systems (called the U-bahn) located just a 2-minute walk from the housing location. Vienna is also an extremely central location to the rest of Europe. You can be in so many other countries within just a few hours with a Eurail pass that is included in your program fee! I would encourage anyone to study abroad if they get the opportunity because it is such a great way to experience different cultures, meet new friends, and travel around your location while having the amazing support of the Global Learning faculty.
