    10 Things to Ask for for Christmas if You’re Studying Abroad In Europe Next Semester

    With Christmas coming up, every college student out there is starting to think about what to ask their parents for. You know, all that stuff that’s just a little bit too pricey to justify buying with their own money (like socks). If you’re studying abroad in Europe next semester, then you might want to ask for a few things to help you out while you’re there. As basically a professional study abroad student (I’m going to university in Scotland for ~ALL FOUR YEARS~), I’d like to think I have a pretty good idea of the kinds of thing to put on your study abroad Christmas list.
