This summer Broadcast Journalism student Brett Kaprelian studied away in Scotland. He blogged about his trip so he could share his experiences with us. Here’s the first installment.
Scotland – Week One
The first week in Scotland was such a fun experience! I love every second here so far.
The countryside is gorgeous. It’s very hilly with grass as green as I have ever seen, not to mention there are beautiful castles everywhere.
On campus at Stirling University, there is a castle.
The first couple of days I was up here, I went over to Edinburgh, the second biggest city in Scotland. I saw parliament, the queen’s vacation house, and the Edinburgh castle.
There is so much history there, it’s crazy. I also ran into the First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon (like the president of Scotland). She is super nice and very excited that we are staying in Scotland for a month.
I can’t wait to explore more of the Scottish culture and make more friends.
So far so good!
