At Karlštejn Castle
eptember Long (History and Political Science, 2015) looks out from Karlštejn Castle near Prague in the Czech Republic, where she is studying this semester. She loves the city, the cultural experience, and the chance to travel to other countries. She says her political science classes are not so great ("primary works and literature are not used in the political science or history classes here at all"), but "Prague Art and Architecture", where they study the development of art from the founding of Prague Castle through the fall of communism and its impact on Czech culture as a whole has been "a really intriguing class." Students at the Anglo-American University come from many different countries and September says that while most are really nice, "it is both interesting and disheartening to realize how most people (students and professors alike) misinterpret America and her role in the world."
