Zoe Hilcoff, Alumni Ambassador
what was your favorite class while abroad, and why?
I took an Irish Language and Culture class while studying abroad in Galway, Ireland. I didn't know Irish before taking the class and found it so fascinating. I practiced my Irish with the locals at places like the grocery store or restaurants.
how did you engage with the local community while abroad?
I lived in a homestay during my study abroad program, so I felt that I easily engaged with the local community by getting to know my host family and hearing their stories. I also walked everywhere during the program so I got more acquainted with the town and learned my way around, which made me feel more like a local!
