Meet Annelise Thorn

Program and Location:

Summer, STEM and Liberal Studies in London; London, United Kingdom

Why did you choose to study abroad?

I wanted to gain a global mindset and see the world

What did you learn about yourself?

I can do anything I set my mind to

What was one of your favorite parts of your program?

Being able to physically go and see what I learned in class

What advice do you have to future study abroad students?

Take care of yourself and plan rest days because otherwise you will wear yourself out

Were you surprised by anything during your time abroad?

I was surprised by how easy and accessible public transportation is in Europe. You can get anywhere you need to go at any time.

How were your classes abroad different than if you would have taken them at NC State? Did you take any field trips or do anything outside of the traditional classroom?

Almost every class I had was a field trip where we were able to see everything we were learning about.

Would you do it again?
