The best advice Julie can give you as a WCU student? Say yes! An education major, Julie wasn't sure she'd be able to fit study abroad into her curriculum, but just a few meetings, some paperwork and a passport later, Julie was on her way to Prague in the Czech Republic. Why Prague? Julie thought the Czech Republic would have a different feel to it than some of the more traditional study abroad locations.
"I learned the importance of saying yes to things and being open to new experiences. I learned that it's okay to feel uncomfortable when you are starting something new. It's important to open yourself up to things and experiences you weren't sure about before; that is what I did by studying abroad."
It turns out-she was right! And, Prague was the perfect starting point for all of the adventures and new experiences that Julie said yes to. She made new friends and memories every weekend as she traveled--visiting Switzerland, Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona, Munich, and Italy's Amalfi Coast. Julie opened herself up to new experiences, and had the time of her life.
