Favorite Stanford Memory: "I would love to repeat the three weeks I spent in Europe with my Overseas Seminar. It was amazing to travel through all the cities - I had no idea places like Brugge and Ghent existed. We stayed in a small university town called Leuven after our trips to places like NATO, the OECD in Paris, the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg, and various institutions of the European Union centered in Brussels. My favorite thing to do during downtime was running through the outskirts of the city - either to the awesome little castle I found in the middle of a forest surrounded by lakes and swans or to the botanical gardens in the city. Oh, and of course, the chocolate was amazing."
