Mechanical Engineering | Aarhus University
Hi! My name is Logan Cummings and I am a senior in Mechanical Engineering. For the spring 2020 semester, I lived and studied abroad at Aarhus University in in Aarhus, Denmark. My semester abroad looked a little different than I had originally anticipated due to the start of the pandemic, but I was lucky enough to be able to stay abroad for the entire semester despite COVID. I had a great time visiting art museums, biking around the city, and going out with my friends. Studying abroad was an amazing experience that taught me a lot about myself and the world around me.
Biochemistry | John Cabot University
Hey! My name is Isa Libonate, and I am a sophomore studying Biochemistry. I spent this past summer studying at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy. My experience was pretty unique because for the first half of the summer Italy was still closed to tourists but by the end of the summer it was back to it’s lively nature. My favorite part about studying abroad was making friends from both the US and Italy and getting to travel around with them all summer (while getting some Mines credits at the same time). I learned a lot about the world and myself and I’m so grateful for my experience.

Hello my name is Eli Yeagley, and I am currently a junior in Chemical Engineering. During the summer before sophomore year, I studied abroad at John Cabot University in Rome, Italy. I then moved to Spain where I spent the fall semester studying at Comillas Pontifical University in Madrid. After growing up in Colorado and then coming to Mines, it was an incredible opportunity to live in different cultures and make lifelong memories and friends.

While there were travel restrictions due to COVID-19, I had am amazing experience living on the French Riviera. My favorite parts of semester include traveling to Paris, Bayeux, and Le Mont-Saint-Michel in Norhtern France.
