The people that I met were the most kind hearted, genuine, and fun people I am ever likely to meet. Everyone I came across was accepting and enthusiastic about getting to know me and my story. By far the greatest thing anyone that studies in Brno and stays at the Vinarska dormitory will take away are the friendships and camaraderie you are bound to create whilst abroad. I would trade the Sistine Chapel for some of the friends I have made in Brno. I greatly hope that I will have the opportunity in the future to see them again.

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 most rewarding element of the whole program was the level that I got to know other international students. I lived in an international dorm (Vinarska) and met friends that I know I will have for the rest of my life. As much as I loved traveling while I was abroad, the best part was having the opportunity to live in an area with like-minded students from countries all around the world.
