Spring 2014 Participant
The Czech Republic is in the heart of Europe. Being in the Czech Republic allowed me to travel to areas of the world that I didn't think were possible and gave me the opportunity to see European culture as a whole. I was able to experience the history of Europe, especially World War II, in a manner that would never be the same elsewhere.

Rachel Beth Frish, Spring 2014 Participant
My favorite part of the Masaryk program was definitely the people. Since Brno isn't a really huge "tourist destination", you met people who were there for the "Erasmus Experience" (Erasmus is the European exchange program). They were there to study, to meet people and make friends, and have fun being in a new place. I loved that it was a dorm-stay program instead of a home-stay because it meant that I got to live with 200+ people from all over the world, learn about their customs, culture, food, interests, etc. My roommate was from Portugal, and is now one of my best friends. Everyone was so genuine and I think it was the best mix of people I could have possibly imagined.

My recommendation is to do a lot of research on the classes. I ended up taking a class that was pretty misleading on the description and ended up hurting the academic experience I had. I would also recommend doing your best to get involved with the campus activities. It is a great way to meet people and open up the opportunity to travel with some great people. Lastly, do NOT be afraid of talking with strangers (other students), they are all in the same boat as you! Oh, and make change before you go, you'll need coins!
