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.
My fears were replaced with pure excitement and anticipation of all that I would then see and do over the next six months.
