How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
Funny enough, the most time I spent engaging with the local community was when I went grocery shopping. The joy of European cities is the ability to walk everywhere, which means more smaller and frequent trips to the grocery store. I went to the same place just about every Monday and Thursday after class and ran into a lot of the same people. Czech people are known to keep to themselves, so it was nice when I got the occasional smile from one of the workers or another regular customer.
What was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
My absolute favorite class was my Prague Art and Architecture class. This was a "go out and explore the the world" kind of class and the majority of the students were from the CEA CAPA program. The professor also made it especially wonderful. This was the only class where I really became close with other people.
