DIS Copenhagen, Denmark
Public Policy Analysis: Biology
Describe your typical day:
I would start by making breakfast with my host mom before class every day. After class I would do homework or explore Copenhagen before helping my host brother with his homework.
Favorite food discovered while abroad:
Æbleskiver—Little round pancake or donut things that were served with powdered sugar and jam as it got closer to the holidays.
What was your favorite part of the city to visit?
There was this great coffee shop in the old part of the city near the Parliament building. It had bright green ceilings, candles on every table, and the best lattes I've ever had. Plus lots of good people watching.

The study abroad mission of the Office of Off-Campus Study at Claremont McKenna College is to connect students to off-campus academic and cultural immersion experiences that support their personal, professional, and intellectual development in a globalized world. Our goal is to assist students in developing intercultural communication, cultural awareness, scholarship, and leadership skills in order to enhance their ability to navigate and succeed in their academic, personal, and professional endeavors.
“Go abroad with an open mind. Inevitably, not everything goes according to plan. Some of the most fun experiences that allowed me to grow as an individual occurred when I least expected it. Learning to be flexible helped me rise above some challenging moments when I had to take a step back and begin to appreciate the initially frustrating aspects of my host country. Lastly, finding a balance between school and free-time is a must, as overemphasizing one or the other can leave you feeling less-than-fulfilled.”
