Final Reflection Questions
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
The people I met in Europe and specifically Vienna are amazing. They have such an interesting outlook on life which caused me to think a lot about my outlook on life. I feel that by being around different people and getting out of my comfort zone, made me become more of my true self.

What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
This program is amazing because it isn't too popular. I loved being surrounded by all Europeans and people that were completely different than me. Also, Vienna is an up and coming city that has so much to offer. There are parks around every corner and an amazing river that is super fun to go swimming. The people are very open and friendly and there is something for everyone to do in Vienna. The university of BOKU is very unique as it is a bit hippyish in the most perfect way.

How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
I realized more specifically what I want to do in my life. When you meet people who are so passionate about what they are studying, you suddenly become passionate as well. People I met had such a different outlook on studying and their career that it makes you think about why you are studying what you are studying.
