Bryce is majoring in Political Science and minoring in History, Philosophy, Political Communication and Technology & Society. He has participated on two OHIO-Credit programs, traveling on the US: Civil Rights Tour and than participating on the France: Revolutions in Paris program. Prior to starting at OHIO, Bryce was able to travel Paris and Italy, which encouraged him to seek out global opportunities.
What skills do you feel you've gained from going on a global program?
Spending a month in Paris definitely helped me become more independent and adaptable to new environments. It also gave me the chance to work on my French, and I found the hands on approach of learning about French history through museums and monuments in the city much more effective than the traditional classroom environment.
What is one of your favorite memories from your global program?
I was extremely fortunate to be in Paris on the 250th anniversary of the Eiffel Tower. My classmates and I went there later that night and watched an amazing light show projected from the tower surrounded by hundreds of French people celebrating.
What advice would you give a student you is interested in a global program?
The best advice I can give is to start researching programs as early as possible. Some programs are not offered every year, and you want to make sure you don't miss any application or scholarship deadlines. By planning in advanced you get much more time to think about what kind of program you want to go on and how it can fit into your degree plan.
