Bailey Ann McGuire, Fall 2015 Participant
My perspective on situations, people, and the world has completely shifted due to my time abroad. I was fully immersed in Czech culture, as well as the cultures of students from all around the world. Nothing will ever compare to the experiences and opportunities that Brno had to offer. It is essential to be completely open to the idea of meeting new people and experiencing new things first hand.

My favorite part about this program was the connections I was able to make. Not only did I spend time with other exchange students, but I was able to meet a lot of locals. I was very involved with the community. I truly value the connections I was able to make and I do intend on maintaining those relationships.
