Scotland vs. Ireland: Rugby Style

April 16th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

One of the highlights of my time abroad so far was when I went to the Six Nations rugby game when Scotland played Ireland.  The largest sports game I have ever been to is some Minor League baseball games in my hometown, so when I went to this rugby game it was completely more than what […]

Traveling The Borders

April 4th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

One of my favorite trips that I have taken while in Scotland was the Borders trip that Arcadia University provided for any interested students.  My suggestion to anyone who is studying abroad on FYSAE in the future is to take advantage of the trips that Arcadia offers.  They are much cheaper than what one would […]

Hillwalking in Stirling

March 25th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

As soon as I made it to the University of Stirling, I was in pure awe of how beautiful the campus was.  The campus includes a very large lake, along with a huge walking bridge that connects one of the main teaching buildings to the dorms.  My room is a single room, as are all […]

A Scottish Homestay

March 16th, 2013 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

I realize that it has been awhile since I have written.  The Scottish lifestyle has been taking quite some time to get used to and I have been so wrapped up in it that I have been distracted from writing.  But don’t worry, I will make up for it and catch up on everything that […]

The Lovely City of Edinburgh

So I’m finally back to start blogging about my second semester of college, but this time I’m halfway across the world.  I started my first ever study-abroad journey to Stirling, Scotland less than two weeks ago and it has already been quite a wild ride.  I’m sure there will be much more in store for […]

First Semester Coming to a Bittersweet End

December 14th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

The past week has been extremely busy with finals, so I apologize for not writing in a while.  My time has been consumed by writing papers and studying biology and chemistry.  It’s funny to think back to my high school days when I thought I had so much homework and that two hours was a […]

The Days Before Finals

December 1st, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

Finals are creeping closer and closer and I am getting more anxious about how I’ll do on them.  Currently I am at the library trying to get some studying done.  Chemistry and Biology will both be tough finals, but I hope that if I review a lot I will be able to do well.  I […]

Thanksgiving in Rochester

November 26th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

I finally got to go home this week for Thanksgiving Break!  It was definitely a weird feeling being back home in Rochester.  I kept thinking, oh great now I have to go back to my dorm and do my work, but then I’d remember that I was back home with my family and friends.  My […]

Mentor Brunch and the Philly Marathon

The past two weekends I’ve had my Sundays booked with Honors events.  Last Sunday I went to the Honors Mentor-Mentee Brunch.  It was an event where the Honors students met with their Alumni Mentors, often for their first time.  We had a delicious breakfast and then played a trivia game which involved guessing a bunch of […]

Visitors and Networking

November 9th, 2012 · No Comments · First Year Study Abroad Experience, Lauren Jolley '16 - Stirling, Scotland

This week has been so full I haven’t had a moment to sit down and write a blog entry until now.  I’ve spent the longest time I’ve ever spent on a homework assignment: a total of 12 hours for one chemistry assignment.  The accomplishment you feel after teaching yourself new concepts and finally finishing all […]
