ISA – Kingston University – London, England (fall 2015)
My name is Elena Conklin and I am currently a senior here at Ramapo College studying as a Music Industry major. My study abroad experience was in the fall of 2015 in London, England. It was a dream come true, to say the least. In London, I lived in zone six on the campus of Kingston University in the town of Kingston, which I personally loved. It was so quaint and comfortable as opposed to central London. Central London was still amazing; I just knew that I was the type of person that liked a more secluded learning environment rather than something much busier like central. I did, however, take the tube (subway) and trains almost 3 times a week to get into central London. I loved exploring in my free time and going out with my new friends whether it be on adventures during the day or at night. I wanted to become a global roadrunner because I knew that students loved hearing about abroad experiences through other students, and not from faculty/staff. After all, that’s how I got hooked into doing it – by hearing from my peers. Let me know if you have any further questions about the program I participated in, or just about studying abroad in general, and I would be happy to meet or talk!
