Studying Abroad in the Winter


Moving onto the Study Abroad topic (my favorite topic of today) – I had heard about the study abroad winter sessions throughout the last three years at Lehigh, but wasn’t sure if I could afford it or if it would be wise to attend one of them. Now, since it is my last year at Lehigh, I paid extra attention to the study abroad emails coming through my inbox. I came across a few programs for this year’s winter session, one being in Munich, Germany (um. YES.)

So I looked into this program further and saw that it is a 9 day program in Germany, with 3 credits offered for a History of Architecture class. Of course I was immediately interested, being a civil engineer I always was fascinated by structures, so to learn about the history of the architecture just seemed like a perfect fit. Plus, it would be a nice difference from all the engineering-design-related classes I have been taking for three years now. I also noticed that there are grants offered to students for the trip based on their financial need, which was also another great benefit that Lehigh provided to their students for this. With that, I applied for both the grant and the program & met with Professor Nikolov, who will be leading this trip, and now I will wait to hear back from the Study Abroad office if they accept me for the trip. I am so excited to have even be offered this opportunity, because a trip to experience Europe and learn would be absolutely amazing.

I’ll give updates about this when I find more out! As always, thank you for reading!!

I am currently a senior at Lehigh University pursuing a Bachelor's degree in Civil Engineering. My blog this semester will be about my last undergraduate year at Lehigh: academics, social events & unexpected day to day occurrences. I'm really excited to share my thoughts, stories, and advice with anyone reading, since I know that all students go through very similar experiences. I can't wait to explore all of the opportunities that the field of Civil Engineering has to offer & I'm excited to live out my last year at Lehigh to the fullest! View all posts by lusamantha14
