I loved getting involved on campus. We worked with a university group that discussed and helped present ideas and solutions to the Syrian refugee crisis. I enjoyed the culture a lot more than the academic experiences because I felt I learned a lot about myself and about other cultures while abroad.

The location of the program makes it ideal for students who want to travel all throughout Europe! You have opportunities to travel all across Central, Eastern and Western Europe!

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.
