Hola! My name is Brian Millard and I’m currently a junior dual majoring in finance and public relations. This semester I’m spending my time abroad here in Barcelona. I’ve been here for a little over a month already and am taking classes through a program known as CEA Study Abroad along with other Syracuse University students.

I’ve always known I wanted to study abroad, and I decided on Spain because I had taken Spanish in high school as well as grade school. I applied to the Madrid abroad program but decided to switch to Barcelona when I learned it was a possibility to study here.

What I’m most excited about is the chance to explore Europe and go to other countries. I have already visited England and Portugal while I’ve been here and am excited to be visiting the Czech Republic this weekend. I’ve always loved travel and being abroad gives me the opportunity to go to cities/countries that I would normally not visit.
