What I love about Austin College:
I love how easy the college makes it to study abroad. There are the usual fall and spring semester study abroad options, but there is also a January Term, which is a 3-week mini-semester in between fall and spring semester. During JanTerm, students have the option of taking an interest-based class on campus, complete an internship, or study abroad for a few weeks. I didn’t study abroad in college because I get homesick easily, and going abroad during a JanTerm would have been a perfect fit for me!
My favorite thing to do in Sherman:
Being from Allen, TX and having attended college in New York, I’m pretty new to the Sherman area myself! I’ve enjoyed exploring the local area by checking out smaller restaurants, hammocking in nearby parks, and strolling around downtown. Downtown Sherman hosts a lot of free events for the community, such as Mardi Gras and Oktoberfest festivals, street fairs, and small-stage concerts. Most of them are free and fun ways to explore all that Sherman has to offer!
