Hello everyone! I don’t have anything as exciting as going to New York to talk about, but I have been doing some fun stuff! Last week my photography class was invited to Jacksonville Zoo so we could attend a seminar held by a National Geographic photographer! Being able to ask Joel Sartore questions was so […]

Hi everyone! The last two weeks have been quite busy, we have finals in a month and some tests before that which are taking up a lot of my time. I now only work at the call centre once a week because I would rather study and it can get a bit repetitive. Right now, […]

It is hard for me to believe that August will mark the one year anniversary of the beginning of my study abroad adventure in Fall 2018. It might have only been four months, but thanks to the opportunity to study abroad at Richmond, The American International University in London, these four months presented numerous opportunities […]

Hi! Much has happened since I wrote my first blog post – I got a job as a student researcher at the university’s public opinion laboratory, met a few new people, taken what felt like a thousand exams, and visited the oldest city in the United States, St. Augustine. However, my biggest joy was finally […]

Hi everyone! I think it’s safe to say that this is my favourite blog post yet! After midterms ended, I was pretty much just preparing for my boyfriend to come visit. He came for a week and we met in Orlando – I took the bus to Orlando and it was the LONGEST thing I’ve […]

Hey guys, here’s my third update! Not too much has happened since my last post because we had midterm exams so I’ve been really busy studying, classes are so much harder here than they are at Richmond. Most of the tests I take are multiple choice because the classes are so big that the teachers […]

Hey, so much has happened over the last two weeks! I’ve been doing a lot more exploring of Jacksonville like seeing the sights downtown, the beach and going to an outdoor cinema in a baseball arena. A girl who goes to UNF messaged me that she saw my last post and asked if I wanted […]

Hi! My name is Cristina, I’m a Junior year student at Richmond, studying BA Finance and Investment, and I am originally from Romania. Although Richmond was my first choice, I have always wanted to experience a college education in the United States. That is why my roommate and I decided to study abroad at the […]

Hi! I’m Zara, a third year International Business Studies student at Richmond. I live in Essex which is about an hour from central London. I love to travel and see other countries and so I am currently studying abroad for a semester at the University of North Florida 🙂 My roommate and I decided to […]

By Kalyn Franke Hi! I’m Kalyn, aka www.girlgonelondon.com, and I was a student at the University of Pittsburgh studying Communications when I studied abroad in 2012 at Richmond, The American International University in London. Richmond showed me that I wanted to work and live in London full-time, so now I work with study abroad students […]

By Mariann Gyorke There it was, on my nightstand, presumably placed there by my Mum in anticipation of my visit. The Yearbook! A closer inspection revealed its title: “The year ’93: Total Recall” and sure enough, memories started flooding back once I opened it… I graduated from Richmond in May 1993, the first Hungarian student […]

By Raghad Tmumen South Kensington and High Street Kensington is basically the hub for all of us Richmond students. Some of us go to the museums quite frequently as we take courses on the High Street campus. Though, have you ever wondered what mystical secrets these places hold? Aside from being utterly rich and full […]
