"Being a hospitality and tourism management major, an international experience is required. Having never been overseas, I was very excited and somewhat nervous for this study abroad experience in Prague. I had looked forward to my study abroad experience since freshmen year. It quickly approached and it was time to embark on this unfamiliar journey! As I departed from LAX, I had a mix of emotions but was excited to see what was in store."
"Being immersed in a completely new culture was an incredible experience and I enjoyed being a part of the minority. The Czech language was very hard for me to understand and after two weeks, I only attained a few words but one thing I did learn is that a smile is universal no matter where you are."
It was crazy that you can travel such short distances by train and be in a completely different country. The one weekend we had free time and I took a train ride with some friends to Vienna, Austria. Austria was very different than Prague yet was so beautiful in its own way.
