Blog: Saltarelli ’15 Eager to Explore New Culture in Scotland

September 19th, 2013 by 


NAME Jacqueline Saltarelli ’15

HOMETOWN Wilton, Conn.

AREAS OF STUDY Sociology major with a peace and conflict studies concentration

WHERE SHE’S STUDYING University of St. Andrews in Scotland

WHY SHE CHOSE SCOTLAND “Being able to study abroad will allow me to learn about people and cultures that I have never experienced before. If Holy Cross has taught me anything, it is to learn about the world we live in, and I think studying at St. Andrews in Scotland will be a perfect opportunity for me to do so.”

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “I am very excited to meet new people who have had many different experiences than I have had. I can’t wait to travel and be changed by European culture.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Blogging while I am abroad will not only allow me to document the different experiences I have (the good and the bad!), but it will also allow me to share my experiences with you. Reading this blog might help students who are considering studying abroad understand the process, the ups, the downs, and the experiences — I know that reading last year’s blogs truly helped me.”
