One woman and one study abroad experience at a top American public university. This is a dream come true for Yasmin Graeml, a student enrolled at University of California, Berkeley, (UC Berkeley) in their International Study Program.
Coffee? Check. Laptop? Check. Excitement to take on another day in America’s #1 public university? Check.
Advanced News Reporting course. Offered by the UC Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism, this course inspires learners to follow in the footsteps of those who came before them -- editors and journalists who went on to staff the country’s top news organizations, winning virtually every major industry award along the way.
With so much good food in and around San Francisco, working out is a given. The Recreational Sports Facility (RSF) at the university is 100,000 square feet of space with every activity imaginable. An Olympic-sized swimming pool, weight rooms, basketball courts, cardio equipment to run, row or bike -- there’s something here for everyone.
Food brings us together, and where better than at the International House, a student center bringing together dozens of nationalities, with incredible dining areas offering up delicious meals from around the globe. Food fuels not just our stomachs, but our minds too.
It’s hard to count how many libraries UC Berkeley has -- there’s the Anthropology Library, the Data Library, the Mathematics Statistics Library, there’s the East Asian Library, the Newspapers and Microforms Library, the Music Library, the Transportation Studies Library – and the list goes on.
Coffee? Check. Laptop? Check. Excitement to take on another day is America's #1 public university. Check.
“Studying at Berkeley gave me a chance to network and meet people that think a different way than I am used to. I guess that is a big part of studying abroad - learning to understand that there are many different lifestyles, ways of thinking and doing things!”
