Trends / Study Abroad

London is one of the most popular cities in the world for study abroad students. The city offers a large amount of diversity in its universities with schools ranging in size and location, which can make it difficult for students to decide which school is right for them. If you’re looking to study abroad in London, you may want to consider a few of these options.


Located in Regent’s park, Regent’s University is a comparatively small school that offers on-campus housing for international students. There are courses available in subjects ranging from acting and global theater to fashion marketing, international human rights and European studies.


King’s College offers a variety of liberal arts, sciences and engineering courses for study abroad students, and the expected amount of courses (or modules) is four per semester. It’s close to the center of the city and within walking distance from a number of theaters including the Duchess Theatre, Novello Theatre and Royal Opera House. You can peruse the course catalog to find study options right for you, which can include courses on the performing arts in London, economics, history and theory in psychology and actuarial science.


If you are a Shakespeare buff or absolutely love the theater, you should consider spending a summer in London studying stage at Shakespeare’s Globe Theater. The program is in conjunction with Richmond, the American International University in London. This opportunity gives students the chance to study English Renaissance drama and theater in addition to the history of the Globe Theater.


The most important factor when choosing a study abroad program is to make sure you will stay on track with your degree when you return to your university afterward. Much like when you shopped for colleges in high school, do your research to see whether the university you plan to attend offers the right courses and class sizes for you.

Foods to Pack for a Long-Haul Flight (and How to Get Them Through Security)

 As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?

Hotel Zeppelin, San Francisco

I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.

Coffee Table Books for the Adult-ish Traveler

There are few things as adult-ish as a well-designed living space. When you stop strewing your Ikea coffee table with old magazines and straw wrappers, and start creating a “lewk” that’s more your style, it’s time to invest in a coffee table book. Sometimes pricey, these are not the tomes you curl up with in your cozy chair. They’re often hefty, artistic and fun and, if chosen correctly, a true representation of your own sense of style and interests.
