How did I end up studying in Croatia?If someone were to tell me a year ago that I would be studying in Croatia, I would think they're crazy. This change in my life is still a shock to me. I never expected to go this far from home. The original plan was to stay close to NYC, so I would have fewer expenses, but that all changed. My friend introduced RIT Croatia to me in my junior year of high school. I found it interesting that there was an American College in Croatia of that ranking because Rochester Institute of Technology is no ordinary college. After researching a about RIT in the States and looked at other options I had, RIT seemed to most fit me. What caught my attention was the option of studying International Hospitality and Service Management. The colleges I applied to did not have this exact major. Of course there were similar but not what I was looking for. The reason I wanted to study IHSM was because hospitality plays a large role in my life. Summers I would spend with my grandmother running the family business on Island Mljet, Croatia. At the bed & breakfast, interacting with tourists became more than just a job. It was no longer an obligation, but was the start to my future. I didn't want to study just anything but rather enjoy it. The more I read about the college, the more curious I was with their branch in Croatia. I told my parents I wanted to study in Croatia. At least the country was not completely alien to me. There was no need to kill myself over power points, pie charts and presentations to persuade my parents to go there, but it did take them some time to process it. I am the second child and the last to leave the house, so I could understand them being extra emotional. I contacted the enrollment office and in the summer after my junior year, I had my interview.
