Chronic Overpacking


Chronic Overpacking

Susanna Shigo is a student blogger studying abroad with AIFS in London at Richmond University. She discusses a popular problem all travelers face:

I over-pack. Always. It doesn’t matter if I will be gone for a night or a year, I will always pack more than I will ever possibly need or be able to wear. So packing for three months naturally scared the daylights out of me. I was panicked. How would I be able to fit everything I could possibly need for 4 months in 2 suitcases? I thought it was totally impossible. I scoured Pinterest, study abroad blogs and asked tons of people, but even then I really had no luck. I knew that I was just going to have to wing it, and that is exactly what I did.

Study Abroad in Paris


Spotlight on Paris

AIFS offers a wide range of program options for students interested in studying in Paris. With two different schools, courses in French and English, and program lengths ranging from 3 weeks to 4 months, we have something for everyone. Our Paris programs allow students the flexibility to focus either on French language, electives, or a mix of both.

One of the many benefits of an AIFS program is the optional and included travel excursions. During the summer and semester, Paris options include London (with our flight package), Normandy, Brittany, and the Loire Valley. Even the 3-week J-Term program offers a trip to Versailles and the Champagne Region.

Volunteering abroad is a great way to give back to the community and sets you apart to future employers. However, the true impact it has on the international community can go unrecognized. The article weighs in on the positive impact humanitarianism has on both the volunteer and the community.
