"Auburn Panhellenic, the friends I’ve made in it, and the experiences I’ve had through it have been some of my most cherished parts of my college experience. This past summer, I got to study abroad in Madrid, Spain for one month and Paris, France for the other due to a Panhellenic scholarship. Seeing the world has always been a dream of mine, I can remember being a little girl and wanting to go to Paris. Auburn Panhellenic gave me the opportunity to see my dreams become a reality. Studying languages can be hard in the states because you’re not fully immersed, but being in those countries, fully immersed in the language, culture, and way of life was life changing. Now I feel like pieces of my heart are scattered across the globe- in Madrid with my host mom Manuela, on a boat in Lake Zürich, Switzerland, with the wonderful food in Brussels, at the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, and with all the amazing people I met along the way. It was the summer of a lifetime- one I will never forget!"
Panhellenic scholarship applications can be found on AUSOM and are due Thursday, February 1st at 4:45pm.
