Study abroad is a really big deal here at Meredith. A high percantage of each graduating class has studied abroad. This could look just about like anything. I had a friend who went to Denmark for 6 weeks last summer, another friend who studied in Australia over fall semester, a friend who went to Germany for a year, and my roommate is currently in Bath, England. This summer, I have a friend going to China and a friend going to Argentina and I will be spending three weeks in Limerick, Ireland. I just bought my plane ticket last week and I am so excited. I will be studying at the University of Limerick as an international student and will hopefully be taking a class on creative writing. Meredith College has really prepared me to go on this wonderful adventure and has even provided me with a wonderful woman who has helped me and will continue to help me along the way. My study abroad advisor, Liz, has been incredible helpful. She helped me figure out where I wanted to go and what I wanted to study when all I knew to start out with was I wanted to go… somewhere… anywhere. Three weeks in Ireland will be an amazing adventure. It is especially cool for me because I can trace both sides of my family back to Ireland. So I will be returning to my roots in a sense. It’s the summer before my Senior year of college and I am so blessed to get to start it off with a bang.
