DIS Student Blogger, Sarah, had a quick moment to sit down with a fellow DISer, Kelsey, to get the scoop on her time abroad. In this quick interview, find out what Kelsey will miss the most about studying here in Copenhagen!
Sarah: What is your favorite thing about studying abroad in Copenhagen?
Kelsey: It’s an amazing city; it has cozy and familiar feel, even though I have never been here before, it feels like home.
S: Where is the first place you would bring someone who is coming to visit?
K: I would take them by the canal that is parallel to DIS. It is a really spectacular peaceful place to bike ride, sit, hang by the canal, and relax.
S: What is one piece of advice you would give to a student who is planning to study abroad in Copenhagen?
K: GET A BIKE! (And a lock.) It is a great way to see the city and fosters a sense of independence that you cannot get anywhere else – and of course you get to feel like a Dane!
S: A major part of studying abroad is getting to know some natives. What is the best way to meet Danes?
K: Go to a coffee shop and start talking to people—it is a lot less weird than you think. Some people may be more receptive and friendly than others, but give it a try!
S: What is the thing you will miss most when you leave Denmark?
K: Being independent and living in a place where there is so much to do and so many places to explore. Everyday here you find something new and have the opportunity to explore a new part of the city.
