Who wouldn’t want to study under the Eiffel Tower every night? Ok, maybe it wasn’t quite that way, but it was pretty close. This summer I was lucky enough to study for 5 weeks in Paris. Granted, my two SMU classes were still challenging, but what a beautiful city to embrace for the journey. And taking notes is so much better on a field trip. My favorite field trip on the program was our class study at Château de Chenonceau (pictured below). We took a trip outside of Paris to the Loire Valley and tied in the studies of multiple French chateaus into our coursework on French history. The view alone was absolutely stunning!
SMU has just about anything and everything you are looking for when it comes to abroad programs, as this was my second summer experience abroad! For all of you in the incoming class, your turn to possibly study abroad is just around the corner. I hope that you will be able to experience an incredible adventure abroad as well!
