The Top 5 Places to Study Abroad in Europe

If you know you want to study abroad but you haven’t yet decided on a country or city where you’ll be attending college, beginning your search in Europe is usually a good start. More than half of all U.S.-based students who choose to study abroad wind up opting for a European city. Europe provides a unique opportunity to travelling students because there are more than 50 countries crammed into a relatively small area. This means you can see and experience so many different cultures without having to travel far. In particular, here are five European cities that are popular options for students looking to study abroad.

1. Lisbon, Portugal

Lisbon is the capital city of Portugal and is continental Europe’s westernmost city, situated along the scenic Tagus River with a coastline on the Atlantic Ocean. This place is rich in history and has managed to keep its old-fashioned charm over the years, despite being home to more than 500,000 residents. Lisbon is one of the most popular study abroad locations in Europe and will usually take up most of the results when you search for “student accommodation Portugal” in Google, with rental listings from providers like Collegiate accommodations being the most popular with discerning students.

2. Barcelona, Spain

Home to the Spanish architectural style known as Catalan Modernism, Barcelona is a uniquely appealing city that has become one of the most popular options for students looking to study abroad in Europe. This place is known for having an excellent nightlife, 5-star dining venues, and exotic beaches.

3. Milan, Italy

While you might be expecting to receive a recommendation for one of Italy’s more popular cities like Florence or Rome, Milan is a better option for students who want to avoid the crowds while still seeing all of the same beauty that the country has to offer. This is a great study abroad location for students who are interested in Italian history, art, fashion, and culture.

4. Berlin, Germany

The city of Berlin has come a long way since the days of the Berlin Wall and is now a melting pot of social progress. Germany has the largest economy in Europe and the country’s interesting capital is an ideal place for students to study abroad. With a population of more than three million residents, this is a place where you should have no problem finding plenty of friends as well.

5. Lyon, France

Lyon is an intriguing French city that’s a popular destination for students looking to study abroad thanks to its rich heritage, architecture, and culinary scene. Located near the border of Switzerland, this is a great city to choose if you want to see the Alps and experience some of the best restaurants that France has to offer.

Do Your Own Research Before Making a Choice

With so many great European cities to choose from, it can be difficult to decide on just one. Start with the list above and expand your search into other areas to make sure you’re considering all of your options before making your selection.

CBD and Studying – How CBD IS Better Than Coffee for Students

When it comes time for finals, you probably turn mostly to energy drinks and other unhealthy habits. It’s very common for students to use coffee, energy drinks, or even concentrated shots of caffeine to keep them awake and help them focus. You probably know that it’s not the best thing for you, but if you feel like it’s your only option, you’ll probably keep doing it. In fact, there are other great ways to do better in school that don’t rely on caffeine. Here are five of them.

1. You Can Avoid Test Anxiousness

Test anxiousness is a big part of why people sometimes do worse on tests than they do on take-home quizzes and homework. Even if you know all the material, being faced with a big test that’s a huge part of your grade is daunting. It’s tough for even the best students. This can actually be exacerbated by caffeine — although it may keep you up and could possibly help you focus, it’s also frequently tied to higher levels of tension.

CBD, on the other hand, helps you to maintain a calm, focused mindset. Using CBD can make it easier to tackle your finals with as much diligence as you do your homework. That’s much better for your state of mind than going into a test already worried about the results.

2. You May Be Able to Focus Better

For some people, caffeine helps them to focus better. However, although it can keep you up, it also makes some people’s brains race. When that happens, you’re likely to have a hard time getting anything done, much less thought-intensive activities like studying.

When you tackle coursework with CBD, you’re more likely to be able to actually focus on your studies. In fact, it’s much less likely that you’ll need to use caffeine to stay up for dozens of hours because you can get your work done more effectively. By promoting focus and concentration, CBD can help make your study hours more effective, not just more lengthy.

3. You Can Alleviate Daily Stress

The actual tests aren’t the only reason most people get stressed during finals week. Everyday stresses are difficult to handle at the best of times, and finals are hardly the best time to be dealing with those everyday issues. Instead of just trying to handle your schoolwork, you need to handle all of it.

CBD is useful for your daily life, not just around finals. When you’re able to approach issues with a calm, rational mindset, you’re likely to be able to untangle that stress. It’s also easy to include in your daily routine — you can take CBD in many ways, including oral solutions, CBD gummies, and even baths.

4. You’ll Maintain More Healthy Coping Strategies

Coping strategies are useful for anyone, because everyone deals with stress at some point in their life. People who teach about coping strategies emphasize making sure that those strategies are healthy, so you can successfully rely on them. Energy drinks just cover up the problem, they don’t actually deal with it.

There are many ways CBD can help with your coping abilities. In your general life, you may be able to deploy coping strategies more effectively. For example, it’s easier to step back and take yourself out of a stressful situation if you’re able to stay calm. You also don’t have to supplement with caffeine in order to stay focused, so you won’t be disrupting healthy strategies with unhealthy ones.

5. You’ll Enjoy Your Time at College More Fully

At the end of the day, you want to be able to enjoy college. It’s true that coursework can be stressful, and it’s hard to make sure you’re able to pass a number of classes when you’re taking them all at the same time. However, it doesn’t have to be so stressful that you can barely keep yourself together.

CBD provides a simple way for you to stay focused and calm throughout your time at college and beyond. or even opt for CBD gummies, you’re more likely to have a great time. Use Charlotte’s Web to make sure you’re getting high-quality CBD from a company you can trust.

A FAVOR DE LO MEJOR

Yesterday, 360 MAGAZINE had the opportunity to speak with a group of communications and marketing college students from Mexico whom embodied all of the core principles of a global society – they all celebrated their own uniqueness.

“Never in my wildest dreams would I ever have envisaged that this once young scraggly African-American boy, whom hailed from Detroit, would be able to influence another culture and encourage others to believe that their own individual brands would be able to coexist with their ability to simply be themselves. This road hasn’t always been an easy one; but with the vast support of team members, family and friends, the impossible has become possible. I dedicate this entire networking presentation to my late father whom always encouraged me to walk in silence while I talk through my actions.” – Vaughn Lowery

Special thanks to Eric Brown (of Nickelodeon), Franklin Pena and Owen Duckett (for capturing this memorable moment).

Lil Uzi Vert Visits Hometown to Spend Time with The Youth

Lil Uzi Vert Makes Surprise Visits in His Hometown of Philadelphia and Brooklyn to Spend Time with The Youth

“It is very important to me that I let our youth know that it is okay to be unique and to not let society put you in a box.” – Lil Uzi Vert

On Thursday October 26th, Lil Uzi Vert surprised the students of Thomas Murphy Clubhouse in Brooklyn with some after school fun and tickets to Power 105.1’s Powerhouse concert at the Barclays Center. On Saturday October 28th, Lil Uzi Vert surprised the kids of the Philadelphia Youth Empowerment program, “Role Models” by speaking to the teens about being creative and overly ambitious.

About 300 students at the Thomas Murphy Clubhouse in Brooklyn, NY were in the gymnasium indulging in after school activities when Generation Now/Atlantic recording artist Lil Uzi Vert, came through the gymnasium’s back door to spend quality time with the eager students.

Lil Uzi Vert who was wearing OFF WHITE X NIKE: Air Jordan 1, black skinny jeans and his signature diamond chains walked in to receive his honorary “Flatbush Suns” basketball jersey. Over the past several months Uzi has been visiting the Thomas Murphy Clubhouse to help with everything from homework to coaching basketball games. To show his appreciation to the students, Uzi surprised several students with tickets to Power 105.1’s annual Power House concert at the Barclays Center where he was a performing along with other hip-hop artists such as Migos, Cardi B, and French Montana.

October 28th turned out to be an incredible day for the students of the “Role Models” Youth Empowerment program in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where Uzi Vert made his second community outreach appearance of the week. 75 students greeted the rapper with loud screams and tears as he walked in to the community center dancing to Playboi Carti’s latest hit single, “Wokeuplikethis”. Uzi spent most of the day with the students listening to their dreams, fears, and watching them showcase their creative talents. “It’s so refreshing to see a rapper that the students look up to take the time out of their busy schedule to promote positive thinking and creativity.”, says Role Models Youth Empowerment Founder, Oddessa Blocker.

Lil Uzi Vert is scheduled to do several community outreach events over the next few weeks in the Tri- State Area. One being a turkey drive during the Thanksgiving Holiday in his hometown of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where the rapper will give out 500 turkeys to family in need.

Lil Uzi Vert is honored to have brought inspiration and creativity to the students of Thomas S. Murphy Clubhouse in Brooklyn, NY and would like to give special thanks to Joseph Belony of Thomas S. Murphy Clubhouse, General Now/ Atlantic Records, and Fine Print BLC, a global experiential branding and marketing group.

About Lil’ Uzi Vert:

An energetic and volatile live artist, Lil Uzi Vert has spent much of 2017 knocking out fans at top festivals such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Rolling Loud. Uzi’s electrifying stage presence and distinctive style prompted the fashion and entertainment industry to commend his “self-confidence and non-conformity”. He is stepping away from the traditional idea of what a rapper is supposed to dress and act like, perhaps more than we’ve ever seen before.

Lil Uzi Vert has also reaped an array of honors in recent months, from taking home the 2017 MTV Video Music Awards’ coveted “Song of the Summer” honors for “XO Tour Llif3” and scoring a “Top New Artist” nomination at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards to gracing the cover of The FADER’s best-selling “Sex Issue.” What’s more, Uzi earned a range of additional awards and nominations for Migos’ #1 smash single, “Bad and Boujee (Feat. Lil Uzi Vert),” including the BET Awards’ “Best Collaboration” trophy and nods for “Top Rap Song” and “Top Rap Collaboration” at the Billboard Music Awards. The 4x platinum certified single’s companion video was a 2017 MTV Video Music Awards “Best Hip Hop Video” nominee with over 44 million views at YouTube alone.

Having left an indelible, chart-topping mark on hip-hop and pop in 2017, this gifted artist is certain to take things even further in the future. Unpredictable, experimental, and utterly original, Lil Uzi Vert is indeed unstoppable.

Top Global Teachers × Redesign Curricula 

Employers complain that graduates are not ready for work. Stanford University studies indicate students are overloaded and under-prepared. So exactly what should we teach young people in an age where Dr. Google has an answer for everything; humans are living longer; the traditional professions disappear while new ones are created; international mobility is drastically increasing population diversity; terrorism, environmental threats and inequality need our collective attention; and robots and gene editing are coming, requiring us to re-examine the very core of what it means to be human?

The Global Teacher Bloggers are pioneers and innovators in fields such as technology integration, mathematics coaching, special needs education, science instruction, and gender equity. C.M. Rubin Founder of CMRubinWorld asked them to reflect on these questions: Do you believe curriculum needs to be more relevant for a 21st century world? If you had the power to change the school curriculum, what would you change?

“We need to develop a generation of critical thinkers, collaborators, communicators, environmentalists and ethical IT users,” writes Rashmi Kathuria in India. “The content of the news in the last few months, and indeed years, provides clear and loud evidence for the fact that our education system is failing,” notes Miriam Mason-Sesay, who believes “division, hatred and bigoted fearfulness are fostered seemingly unchallenged, and our education system has not prepared our youngsters to evaluate the veracity of so many claims.” Craig Kemp in Singapore wants “more emphasis on lifelong learning skills than on curriculum content,” and Elisa Guerra Cruz’s curriculum would be focused on “passion projects, aimed at gaining knowledge and abilities, but also at discovering whatever fires a student’s heart,”

The Global Teacher Bloggers have founded schools, written curricula, and led classrooms in 16 different countries that stretch across every populated continent on earth. CMRubinWorld’s Top Global Teachers are: Rashmi Kathuria, Jim Tuscano, Craig Kemp, Jasper Rijpma, Elisa Guerra, Pauline Hawkins, Maarit Rossi, Vicki Davis, Miriam Mason-Sesay, Shaelynn Fransworth, Carl Hooker, Adam Steiner, Warren Sparrow, Nadia Lopez, Richard Wells, Joe Fatheree, Kazuya Takahashi, and Abeer Qunaibi

CMRubinWorld launched in 2010 to explore what kind of education would prepare students to succeed in a rapidly changing globalized world. Its award-winning series, The Global Search for Education, is a highly regarded trailblazer in the renaissance of 21st century education, and occupies a widely respected place in the pulse of key issues facing every nation and the collective future of all children. It connects today’s top thought leaders with a diverse global audience of parents, students and educators. Its highly readable platform allows for discourse concerning our highest ideals and the sustainable solutions we must engineer to achieve them. C. M. Rubin has produced hundreds of interviews and articles discussing an extensive array of topics under a singular vision: when it comes to the world of children, there is always more work to be done.
