Abroad in Austria Pt 1 5/28/2013

I’m Tiffany, and I am a Senior Marketing major here at UofL. I started planning for my abroad experience almost a year and a half in advance so if you’re thinking about going, just go make an appointment…like now. You don’t have to be dead set on going or know where you want to go or anything. Even if you’re just curious, go. The further along you get in school the harder it is to take classes that will actually count for graduation credits. I actually had to pick up a management minor because none of the classes that were offered by my abroad program counted towards any marketing class-Which is okay for me because I cared more about the experience than the credits.
Anyway so I’m leaving for Bregenz, Austria tomorrow with a program called KIIS out of WKU. It’s a really awesome program where basically they get a whole bunch of students and professors from the KY, IN, TN, OH area and create a mini school overseas. They have a bunch of different places where their programs go (I personally chose the Bregenz program because I didn’t want to be in a big city and it’s a homestay) and all of the classes are taught in English by the professors in the program. So if that sounds neat to you, check it out! I’m really nervous to be leaving because it’ll be my first time out of the country and I don’t really know anyone who has been out of the country either so I’ve been kind of on my own in my planning and preparing but hopefully by the time I get back I’ll be an expert and I’ll be able to help others prepare for their first time going overseas. So that’s kind of an introduction to me and my “Everyone should study abroad” inspirational speech. Talk to you tomorrow when I’m in AUSTRIA!
