Bonjour! I'm a junior Early Childhood Education and English double major. In the Fall of 2015, I studied abroad in Paris, France at the Parisian Center of Critical Studies. I spent my semester learning about the French language and culture, as well as traveling around France and different European countries. Studying abroad was the best decision I ever made, and I truly enjoyed learning more about the world during my time there. I can't speak highly enough about studying abroad, so I'd love to talk to anyone thinking of studying in Paris or Europe in general!

I am a senior Marketing major with a Criminology minor. During the Fall 2014 semester I studied abroad in London, England at the University of Westminster. I was able to travel through 7 other countries other than England during my time abroad. I loved every moment abroad and learned quite a lot about other cultures as well as myself. I am more than happy and excited to hear from fellow students and offer advice for their abroad adventure!

Galway, Ireland

Office hours: Tuesdays, 2:15-4:15pm

I am a senior marketing major with an economics minor. During the spring of 2015 I chose to study in Galway, Ireland. I took classes at the National University of Ireland Galway where I was able to gain a global perspective on many business concepts that I had touched upon in my studies at Stonehill. I spent most of my time in Ireland exploring the countryside and getting to know the locals by trying all of the incredible cafes, restaurants, and pubs. I ventured to many other countries throughout my time abroad that I would have never dreamed I would go to. I absolutely loved my semester overseas and cannot encourage it enough. I’m looking forward to talking with anyone who might be interested!

Ciao! I am a Graphic Design and Marketing major in the Class of 2016. The Fall 2014 semester that I spent at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy was absolutely fantastic and I look forward to helping as many of you as I can plan your own adventure! I was fortunate enough to make it to 13 different countries during my time abroad and would love to talk to anybody interested in calling Italy home for a semester, or has any questions about the ins and outs of European travel. I look forward to meeting and sharing the joys of travel with you!

Office hours: Thursdays, 1-3pm

¡Hola Stonehill! I’m a junior International Business and Spanish double major. This past fall, I was studied in Salamanca, Spain, at the oldest university in Europe. My four months abroad were a time full of learning (both in and outside the classroom), making new friends, and experiencing cultures not native to my own. I was fortunate enough to travel around both Spain and Europe to develop a stronger sense of cultural awareness and a better grasp on the world. Just a year ago I had never been on a plane, and now having some travel knowledge, I would love to share my stories and adventures with you. Studying abroad is a good way to kick-start your desire to see what the world has to offer, and I would recommend it to anyone.
