Blog: Paulino '16 to Study International Relations at Scotland’s St. Andrews

NAME Victoria Paulino '16

HOMETOWN Worcester, Mass.

AREAS OF STUDY Political science major

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

WHY SHE CHOSE SCOTLAND “I have always wanted to study in the United Kingdom. That, paired with the international relations department at St. Andrews, made it a perfect fit.”

WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Being part of a different culture. I know that I will be lost most of the time in those first few weeks, but I am excited about it, too. I am excited to push myself out of my comfort zone and experience something new.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Past study abroad blogs on the Holy Cross website helped me decide to spend my junior year at St. Andrews. I want to be that same type of resource for other students who are unsure whether the study abroad experience is for them.”
