    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Denmark Study Abroad Opportunity

There was a meeting today about a new study abroad opportunity being offered in the spring of 2016. The abroad experience involves receiving 4 credits in the learning about the science of happiness, something I find very intriguing, and a two and a half week trip to Denmark. I went to the meeting, because I really wanted to learn more about the opportunity.

During the meeting, the two faculty members leading the trip told us some details and possibilities for the trip. They also spoke about Denmark being a very happy country; this having to do somewhat with the way their government provides for the people. Overall, the experience will encompass some time spent time learning about happiness and how we can increase our own level of happiness and the other time will be spent in one of the happiest countries in the world.

For some reason, this abroad opportunity stood out more to me than some others have. I think it may have to do with the focus on and study of happiness. The idea of learning more about happiness and traveling to Denmark excites me. The possibility of me participating in this abroad experience is not set-in-stone, but it is something I am definitely going to keep in mind.
