Final Reflection Questions
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
For me, there were several significant take-aways from my experience abroad. Some of these include but are not limited to learning about another culture while immersing myself within the culture, studying in a new and different environment, and being able to see another part of the world. Allowing myself to step out of my comfort zone for an extended period of time while studying and learning was a valuable experience that I won't forget.

What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
Living in Paris for six weeks gave me the opportunity to explore not only Paris, but numerous cities in France. Along with that, meeting locals was very interesting and opened my eyes up to a new culture with a new way of thinking.

What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
Getting to see the art that I've been studying as an art history minor in person was by far the most moving part of the experience. I loved getting to walk around in amongst so much history.
