Blogging from Vienna:
Keep up with Zoe Bludevich'09, who has posted her last blog from Europe: I believe that going abroad for a semester is a necessary part of your college experience. Leaving home and going away for college was my first challenge and after I succeed at that, the next step was to leave behind all that was familiar and comfortable. Studying abroad in Austria has not always been the easiest, I have in a sense lived under a rock. I don’t speak the language, so everything a little more challenging then it is at home. But this semester has been life changing. It has allowed me to the see the world from a different perspective. I feel honored and lucky to have lived in a foreign city for four months of my life. It will be hard to board my plane on Sunday, but I’ll be back to Vienna sometime and a piece of me will always be here. So until then, auf Wiedersehen Wien!! Read more.
