Belfast Adventures

Heading to Belfast, I knew no one. It was daunting to say the least. In retrospect the flight was the worst part because there are so many scenarios flying through your head and you can really start to doubt yourself or why you decide to study abroad at all. Hold out though, the feeling passes. Upon arrival to orientation, I was visible shaking nervous. But I started a conversation with a group of girls that sat near me, and they became some of the best friends I'd ever made. The whole beginning of the study abroad experience for me was a lot like the first day of college as a freshman. You don't really no anyone, yet somehow your befriend someone and it becomes just a little bit easier until you wondered why you had any anxiety at all. My classes were all intriguing and the professors deeply knowledgeable and It helped to eased the transition from the US college organization to the UK. I went on some amazing trips, some provided by the school, others recreational I planned with friends and is essential to travel at least somewhere while abroad. This is integral to the overall process as it really helps you find out more about the culture you're immersed in, but even more about yourself. After arriving home, I feel quite nostalgic. Its hard to fight off the travel bug once you've been exposed and I am excited to visit my friends all around the world. I can't wait to book my next ticket.

Unforgettable

It is difficult to stay in a foreign country at the beginning, but once you get used to it you can enjoy a complete experience with many new people. Moreover, the options of accommodation which are offered will make you feel at home. I stayed at the University's halls and I had a very good experience.
