Women's Soccer's Julia Janikies Reflects on Study Abroad Experience in South AmericaAugust 13, 2019Hello! My name is Julia Janikies and I am now a senior on the women's soccer team. I have always had a huge passion for discovering the world and knew that studying abroad was something I had to do as a part of my college experience. I also knew that I really wanted to play soccer in college and this was one of the main reasons as to why I decided to come play at Babson, not only for the great education, but also because I knew I would be able to play soccer, as well as go abroad for a semester.
What I Did This Summer: Women's Soccer Rising Junior Addie LalorAugust 09, 2019This summer I was accepted into the Arcadia University London Summer Internship Program. This program entails both a study abroad and internship experience which was exactly what I wanted for my summer. I arrived in London on June 2nd and began classes and work two days later on the 4th. I elected to take a 'Contemporary Photography' class and then was required to take a 'Work in Thought and Action' class both lasting three weeks and granting me six credits total. I decided to take the photography class because in addition to exploring incredible photography and historically acclaimed photographers in the classroom, our class was also taken all around London to various art exhibits and musuems; this was the perfect way to pick up photography again and explore the art and history scene in London. My Work in Thought and Action class mainly covered the difference in work and work environment around the world and required an extensive research paper at the end touching on your place of work, what you did for your internship, challenges you faced working there, challenges the company faced, research on those challenges and their potential solutions, and a conclusion about what you learned working there.
