I am happy to introduce you to Gika, a 3rd year majoring in Finance and International Business with a minor in Marketing!
Throughout her experience at UC she has had the ability to visit over ten countries! Through semester exchange she has spent time at Toulouse Business School in France and Univerza v Ljubljana in Slovenia. While she was in Europe she backpacked through France, Italy, Spain, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia, Germany, Austria, Hungary, and the Czech Republic! When asked what her favorite place was she said it was “Vienna, Austria because the city is so beautifully efficient with one of the world’s best transportation systems.” Her favorite country was the Dominican Republic that she also got to visit on a service trip.
With such an amazing experience we asked her how students can get more involved with Semester Exchange and if scholarships are available. If you are in business she personally knew that a lot were offered through them and that “you can always find an external program of your own and work with your adviser to ensure that you get the proper credits.” She mentioned that all your scholarships for a regular UC semester are transferred over as well!
