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.

My favorite part about the Masaryk University program was the fact that it was in Brno, Czech Republic. Brno is the second largest city in the Czech Republic. It is a big enough city that I was able to explore and experience something new each day, but it was small enough that tourists weren't crawling the city and I was able to get to know the locals and the Czech culture.

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.
