Prague, Czech Republic
Mary Hines, Alumni Ambassador
How did you engage with the local community while abroad?
Living right in the city was a great way to live like a local to me! We formed relationships with the shop owners and businesses around us and ended up hanging out with some of the locals. They told us about Czech traditions and made sure we always went to the fun cultural events around the city.
what's one story or important aspect you always tell people about your time abroad?
One aspect about my time abroad is that I went to a city I didn’t know not knowing a soul! I ended up however meeting some of the best friends of my life and we still talk daily. Don’t be scared to go study abroad without your friends! They may be waiting there!
