My favorite part of the program was the strong community of international students. Masaryk University has a huge "erasmus" (European study abroad) community, so it was very easy to make friends, meet people, and find people who were experiencing the same things as you.
Additionally, traveling was great! Czech Republic is in a very central location, so there are so many different places to go on weekends... take advantage of that!

My favorite part about my semester abroad in the Czech Republic was the many opportunities to meet people from all over the world just in the university and dormitories. I made friends from so many countries and as a result, learned so much more about the world.

My favorite part of this program was the culture and diversity in the Czech Republic. I knew nothing about the country or language but I learned so much while I was there.
