Hello, my name is Austin White, and I am volunteering as an exchange agent for the education abroad department at VIU. 

I am going into my fourth and final year at VIU in Computer Science.  I did an exchange in the spring semester of 2020, to the university of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom.  Before attending school, I was able to travel to Munich, Germany and Prague, Czechia.  During my travels and studies, I was able to meet several new people and quickly make new friends from all over the world.

Hello, my name is Brodie Hay, I am a 4th year VIU student studying Computer Science as well as a volunteer exchange agent working with the Education Abroad department at VIU.

This year I was lucky enough to go on exchange for the summer semester to Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule (OTH) Regensburg in Bavaria, Germany. I was able to get a lot of travelling done before my semester started, and I was lucky enough to visit places like Zurich, Budapest, Vienna, and a lot of different German cities!
