As various deadlines for semester in the Spring abroad approach and I scramble to stay ahead of the game, I am overwhelmed with excitement about the opportunity that awaits me.
However, I can’t help but worry about the country that I hope to visit, study, and travel in as they experience many of the same burdens that other countries in the EU worry about. In fact, such problems in their market have lead to their prime minister, Berlusconi, to step down.
This means that I will be entering a country amidst an upheaval, a change in its government. Will this affect me? Or the University that I will be attending? Possibly. I can only stay informed and hope that nothing drastic happens.
