My time in Paris was a truly incredible, once-in-a-lifetime experience. I was able to take classes that seamlessly transferred to the Core curriculum and towards my degree, while making close friends and living my best Parisian life. I really believe that every student should do a study abroad program, to continue to push themselves out of their comfort zones and into new areas of interest. Overall, I’ll look back on those months in Paris as the best decision I could have made at Columbia.

Ella Damstra, Johns Hopkins University '20

“I came back realizing that these four years aren’t about becoming something great or discovering your destiny but about learning how to be a better person and how to be a member of a community, locally or globally.”
