"Hi! My name is Maren Mellen and I am a rising junior on the Babson women's lacrosse team. This summer from June – August I am abroad in London with the Babson Honor's Program.
As a part of this program, I had the opportunity to work as an International Sales & Marketing intern for an asset management firm for six weeks and study abroad at the London School of Economics (LSE) for three weeks. I chose this program because the LSE is known for being one of the best universities in the world and I wanted to experience going to school in a big city.
One of the best parts about my experience has been meeting students from all over the world and getting the chance to work in another country. Also, I have been fortunate enough to travel to places like Scotland, the Netherlands, Prague (Czech Republic), Ireland, and France. Going abroad in the summer has allowed me to experience other cultures like never before – I am extremely grateful for the opportunity and I can't wait to be back at Babson this fall to #defendthedam!"
