WSA is Back for Fall 2011!

Ciao tutti! Andy here and I'm excited to say after a long summer of organizing, scheming, planning and executing, we're just about the kick off the most epic semester abroad ever! Along with more departures than ever before and an incredible first year of tours with over 350 students partaking in our weekend city adventures, we're launching two new destinations: Amsterdam and Venice. We selected these two cities due to popular demand, and I gotta say I'm pretty excited to launch both of these canal'd cities. In keeping with our mission to plunge into local cultures, we're taking private glassblowing lessons, gondola tours, "giro d'ombra" extravaganzas and sampling some famous pancake goodness all for the purpose of making these weekend experiences ones you'll never forget.


Check out our new facebook page too! We just launched our new landing page featuring highlights from our last year of tours. Thanks to everyone for helping our innaugural year off to such a great start.


Signing off from Dublin where we're coordinating plans for the biggest WSA St. Patrick's Day Adventure ever. Andy

Happy Backpackers

This past weekend, I traveled to Budapest with WSA with a couple of friends from my university abroad, and I couldn't have asked for a better trip! After arriving at the hostel, we met Bogi, our tour guide for the weekend, who was instantly friendly and welcoming. Throughout the weekend, Bogi was an amazing guide! She showed us some great places for shopping and food, as well as the top sights around the city. You could tell she loved her job and never passed up an opportunity to share about her hometown and some of its history. She was so friendly and was sincerely interested in us as individuals and did everything she could do accommodate our priorities for the weekend (whether it was food, shopping, nightlife, sightseeing, etc.) I would highly recommend WSA's guided tours for any student studying abroad who wants to explore more than their university's city!
