Avery Thompson, Alumni Ambassador
what was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My favorite class was International Finance. As a finance major with a passion for intercultural communication, I feel as if this was the perfect combination of my passions and interests. I learned so much about international economies, and I'm thrilled that I did this while in an international setting.
how did you engage with the local community while abroad?
While studying abroad in Barcelona, I engaged with the community through doing more local-based activities to meet as many locals people as possible. This ranged from Sunday farmers markets, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, or even doing an all-Spanish yoga lesson in Park Ciutadella. These experiences all contributed to learning and speaking to the community of Barcelona, and it was the most rewarding experience.
