Bonjour tout le monde! 

Hello everyone! 

One of the best things about my study abroad program is definitey the fact that we get to go so many places with our classes.  By the end of this semester, I will have visited four wine vineyards with my wine tasting class, museums in Nice and Marseilles with my art history class, and a concentration camp and Marseilles with my history class.

Hi everyone! 

Spring has arrived, and yet the temperatures still remain cold here in Aix. I have definitely been homesick for Boulder this week. It has been so warm this week there, and I have seen so many pictures of people lounging on Norlin quad and hiking Chataqua. Although I love it here, and I am so happy to have the opportunity to spend four months in France, I definitely miss Boulder and my friends.  I am looking forward to getting back to Boulder this summer!

Spring Has Sprung!

Thursday, March 19, 2015

If you walked around campus, you’d have noticed something new happening. All around, students were slack-lining, playing Frisbee and just hanging out. I had several midterms and papers due this week, so I wasn’t one of the lucky ones that got to run amok. However, I did participate in my own way… I studied. But I studied OUTSIDE.

Inner Tube Water Polo, or Why Intramurals Are the Best

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Intramurals are great because nobody takes them too seriously. Except if you're good. Like my team. We're going to win it all.

Do You Need African Dance for a Business Major?

Tuesday, March 17, 2015

Everyone tells you that college is the place to try new things, but last year I would have laughed in your face if you had told me that I would be taking African Dance at 8:15 a.m.

Enjoying My Time in Aix

Thursday, March 12, 2015

Hi everyone!

With traveling so much, I haven’t really been able to enjoy spending much time in Aix. The last few days, I have tried to spend as much time experiencing the French lifestyle!

If You Don't Like the Weather, Turn Around

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Last week, Boulder was hit with 7 days of snow. Going anywhere was almost impossible as the roads were icy and snow was piling up. My roommates and I took up the activity of hanging out in our basement and watching movies and catching up on TV shows. I had to layer up so much every time I went outside because otherwise I would complete freeze on my walk to class. Walking through campus reminded me of living in a snow globe. It was absolutely beautiful, but also I was starting to get a little sick of winter.

"Yeah . . . I'm here for some advising?"

Wednesday, March 11, 2015

Coming from a small school (actually it could be referred to as miniscule), I didn’t fully understand the prospect of choosing your own schedule. I’d always had “options” at my school, which meant that I could choose between the five math classes my school offered. And that’s five courses spread out over four years, by the way. So coming to college and literally having a course CATALOG was a bit of a surprise. The freedom I had was also exhilarating and terrifying.
