The city. Vienna is an amazing city that many people don't consider, but it is beautiful, clean, safe, and has so much culture. It was everything an exchange student could ask for. Not to mention it is so central we could travel to a different country in less than an hour.

Truthfully, it's extremely hard to name only one thing! My time in Vienna was absolutely amazing. Vienna itself, is a beautiful, clean city which was an amazing "home base." Due to its centralized location, I was able to easily travel to 14 different countries. When looking at the specific program, I would have to say that my favorite part was the Buddy program that WU Vienna offered. Although it isn't part of the study abroad office, but rather a student organization, it was an instrumental part to easse my transition into living in a different country. There were various social events that were planned around Vienna, so it was an excellent way to meet other students who were studying abroad from all over the world. On top of local events, you had the option of choosing to sign up for a destination trip. They planned around 5-8 trips/ semester that you had the opportunity to be part of. Another great part of this program was the option to have a "buddy" assigned to you. Your buddy was responsible for picking you up from the airport, helping you buy a sim card, and other misc. tasks that need to be accomplished once you first arrive. It was great having a local student be there whenever you had any type of question.

Don't be scared to reach out to other students and try to make friends. Everyone is just as freaked out as you are and they are always glad to have someone reach out to them.
