Ever since starting college, I knew I wanted to study abroad, but I had so many questions. Where? When? With what program? How long? Thanks to the help of my friends and advisor, it became any easy decision. CEA is one of two programs offered for students at Iowa State to study in Barcelona.

But now, I’d be happy…

Walking 5 minutes in any direction in Prague (or hopping on the super efficient public transportation trams or metro) means finding a new café, art installation or historical site to check out. Prague has the feel of a big city, but almost everything is within walking distance. In one day, you can hit highlights like Old Town Square, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, one of the many markets, the NaFilm museum, one of the many amazing Trdelnik stands, and much more.

Here are three tips to ensure you’re mentally and physically prepped to enjoy every second of your time abroad: Stay Balanced In those initial days (or weeks) after your arrival, you’ll be full of nervous energy.
