Greetings! My name is Tom. I am finishing up my Junior year working towards a BS degree in Global Business at USF St Petersburg. I am a non-traditional student working full-time and attending 2 classes per semester. I am so excited to be participating in the Doing Business in Europe study abroad program. I have been awarded the Mark and Kay Orr scholarship to help cover some of the costs. This program is ideal for someone like me, in that it satisfies so many needs. I earn course credits and fulfill one of the degree program requirements as a Global Business major. It occurs between semesters, so other classes aren’t affected; and, it’s a great way to spend my annual 2 weeks of vacation. I had an opportunity to visit France and Italy 30+ years ago after graduating high school (I’ll let you do the math on that) and look forward to seeing new places this time around. Munich, Stuttgart, Amsterdam and London are where we will be going. There is a lot crammed in to 2 weeks, so I’m sure it will feel like a whirlwind trip. I’m going to enjoy as much of the local culture as I can and look forward to sharing the experience with you!!!
