Studying Abroad at UWTSD-Week 1 0

Semester two officially begins for my course on Monday, but I felt like it started for me a few days ago when this semester’s international study abroad students arrived. The international office and buddies went to Heathrow with a bus to collect the students. Once they arrived more buddies were waiting to great them and take them to their rooms. I stayed behind because I had a presentation due, so I was really excited when the bus pulled up with all the new students.

The first day they spent in Wales started off with breakfast in the Halliwell and orientation, followed by a tour of the town. I love showing Carmarthen to the study abroad students because it’s like seeing it with new eyes again. It helps you appreciate how the cultural and modern aspects of the town work so well together. We started off on campus and walked through the town together, showing all the places we love to go eat with friends and go shopping. Our favourite stop has to be the Carmarthen castle, which is always the first real castle they see on their trip with us, so the excitement is fun!
After that everyone was a little tired as we headed home.
