By Daniel Goldstein, Tufts University '19 / There was no ambiguity about the buildup, the views offered when at the top, or even the speed with which you would eventually fall back to the ground. But even this foresight didn’t prevent the stomach-churning anxiety at the start, the budding adrenaline as you left the safety of the ground, the moment of awe at the peak of ascension, and harness-clinging as you fell.
By Megan Mahoney, Middlebury College '19 / After reflecting on my semester and how I have grown, it is easy for me to pinpoint the impact Swedish culture has had on my life. Sweden has completely empowered me to know that as I woman, I can have it all. There should be no limits to the respect, opportunities, and aspirations I have for myself.
By Kelly McCarthy, Oberlin College '19 / So here I am, on month eight of my time in Sweden. I got my wish and then some; over the last eight months, I have explored more of Sweden than I have even of my home country.
By Jack Wright, Hamilton College '19 / While searching for study abroad programs, I knew that to truly experience cultural immersion, I would have to live with a host family. I can say with absolute certainty that living with my host family (including my two host siblings and a dog) has been the highlight of my semester so far.
By Carrington Walsh, Harvard University '20 / I chose to study abroad, as most do, because I want to experience living in a new country, not simply touring around and seeing the main attractions. In my time here thus far, I’ve succeeded in exploring the city and blending in with the locals by becoming a café lover.
By Ben Morton, Williams College '19 / Early this semester, I was lucky enough to be accepted by the Student Association at SSE to participate in a special trip, London Investment Banking Week. I and 29 other students at SSE traveled to London and spent a few hours each day visiting different investment banks and asset managing firms across the city.
