The 4 Best Places To Study Abroad

Most college students, no matter where you go, have the opportunity to study abroad and well, if you're clueless as to where you want to go, look no further. Here's a condensed list of five absolutely stunning places to go to:

1. Madrid, Spain

Spain in general is one of the most fashion-forward and historically rich countries. The city is literally in the middle of Spain and there are tons of attractions you can go to. First of all, football (soccer) is staple there and even if you don't like the sport, it would be a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience watching a match in a country where the sport originated from. Not only that, but because it is in the middle of the country, you can also take a 5 hour train ride or flight to Pamplona where the notorious Running of the Bulls takes place. If you're like me, then you would also agree that food is one of the best parts about travelling-which Spain has a lot of. From street foods to a lot of affordable restaurants - you name it, they got it.

2. Delhi, India

India is easily one of the most gorgeous and unique places anyone can go to. Everything there is a complete 180 compared to the U.S. There's the historical Taj Mahal that was built by a Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan, to function as the tomb of his favorite wife, Mumtaz Mahal. Not only that, but there is also the Mcleodanj if you're into hiking, camping and looking at sceneries. The name literally translates to Heaven Amidst the Hills. You can also go to Binsar, which is a jungle, and you can experience all forms of wildlife, and my personal favorite, Kutch. Kutch is basically a white desert and the most visited place by tourists. They have an annual kite flying festival. Udaipur is also another tourist favorite and is often portrayed as the "Venice of the East," located in Rajasthan.

3. Milan, Italy

There are so many places you can go to Italy, it's almost endless. There's the ruins of Pompeii, a city that was burnt to the ground by a volcanic eruption, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Colosseum, Venice gondolas, The Vatican, fashionable stores, authentic Italian food that will probably make you want to eat only authentic Italian food and not the American kind. It is one of the most visited study abroad countries in the world!

4. Mykonos, Greece

If you're looking to island hop and experience the beach life- this is it, you can stop looking now. Greece is the picturesque place you can go to. No need to photoshop a cool back drop during spring break on your Instagram post, when you have a real life photoshop-looking place right in front of you. There's the turquoise blue water, and yes, Mediterranean food. You can literally take a ferry from one island to another to explore all of Greece and it's all really affordable.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
