Hey! My name is Brian Michalica and I’m currently a Junior planning to major in accounting and finance. Just to get to know me a little better; I love just about all sports, traveling and, of course, who doesn’t love baby hippos! They are the best animals alive, except for when they grow up. Hippos are still awesome in general, but are just more awesome when they are babies!

This summer I studied abroad in Prague, Czech Republic for 10 weeks and it was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. I would strongly recommend that everyone should study abroad no matter how long the trip is. While I was there I had an internship and took an intro level Czech language and culture class. I was also able to travel to Barcelona, Spain, Brussels, Brugge, Belgium, Bratislava, Slovakia, Amsterdam, Netherlands, Plzen, Czech Republic, Nuremberg and Berlin. So as you can tell, it was an action packed summer with lots of traveling, but it was honestly the best time of my life. Along with traveling abroad, I’ve been to over 30 states and want to see them all at some point. So no matter where the traveling takes me, you can be sure that I will be all around the globe!

As far as things on campus here at UWO, I participate in all different intramurals, joined the accounting club my Sophomore year, am a member of the National Society of Leadership and Success and am a member of the Alpha Lambda Delta Society. I also have three jobs including Titan Gold Corp, USP Peer Mentor and a College of Business Student Ambassador. So overall I’m very involved on campus.

My final remark is to challenge you to go out and experience the world for yourself and you’ll be amazed by the things you can do!
