Hi, This is my first thread on this website. I will be a sophomore in college this fall. I plan to study abroad in Europe my junior year. I will need to make a decision about where I want to go by the end of this year.
Some info about me: Male, will be turning 20 in August, I go to a midsize state school, sociology major, originally from the Los Angeles area, huge follower of edm(electronic music), I spend way too much money going to concerts and music festivals haha.
Currently I am very interested in Amsertdam, Berlin, and Prague. Here is what I am looking for in a study abroad city:
-Great nightlife: (clubs, bars, music, etc) I am not the type of person who enjoys sitting at home on the weekends. I like museums, nature, sightseeing as much as the next person but having an active nightlife is an absolute MUST for me. Amsterdam and Berlin both have thriving music scenes but I know Amsterdam is a smaller city overall. Will there be enough to occupy me in Amsterdam without getting too repetitive?
-Ability to travel: This is why I am choosing to study abroad in Europe rather than a place like Australia. I want to be able to travel as often and as easily as I can.
-I will be taking my academic courses in English. While I will try my best, learning another language is not a requirement for me.
- I DON'T want to stay with a family. I would like to live with other students in either an apartment or on campus dorm.
