Hi Terri!

I recently returned from a fantastic semester abroad in England where I studied history alongside UK students at the University of Birmingham. While I was abroad I was able to submerge myself in the fascinating British culture by living with current undergrad students at UoB. My time there was wonderful. In addition to exploring metropolitan Birmingham I was able to visit places such as London and Liverpool in England, as well as going to Wales and Scotland.

To conclude my time abroad I went on a month trip through Europe that took me through Amsterdam, Italy, and France. This trip inspired me to continue travelling and growing as a person, and I would urge anyone who has any interest at all to take a leap and go!

Best,
Catherine
