Notes from Abroad: Natalie in London
Notes from Abroad is a new feature on the Off-Campus Programs website, in which we highlight small snippets of a student’s experience. This week’s feature is from Natalie Robinson ’17, a major in Communications currently studying abroad in London, England.
Fall 2016 Term: AIFS London, England
First, I wanted to say thank you for your donation because it helped make this opportunity possible for me and I am truly grateful. This is my first time visiting Europe, I had only gone out of the country once previously to this.
What is so great about coming to London for instance is that it’s not much a culture shock to me as it would be if I had went to China. I truly feel like I fit right in and the ease of fitting in was really great feeling because I didn’t know what to expect when I came here. T
here are many things that are different like the British food is interesting to say the least and they drive on the opposite side of the road. Aside from that London is amazing. The architecture is so beautiful here and it’s so easy to navigate the public transportation its as if I’ve been living here my whole life. Everything just comes really natural here.
Classes are going really well and I have some really amazing professors who love their craft and really know what they’re talking about. I love that I get to take classes we wouldn’t have back on campus at LFC. I didn’t come prepared beforehand because I didn’t know what to expect, but everything has been going really well for me.
I’ve also been taking this opportunity to travel around Europe, which if it wasn’t for this opportunity I would probably never had the opportunity of doing at a young age. I’m truly grateful for your help so I can continue to grow as in individual and immerse myself in another culture and learn from people in other parts of the world.
