Gator guide & exchange
students of the month
Exchange Student of the Month - Viktor Hurup
I’m from Aarhus Denmark, I’m studying economics and business administration with the intention of starting on my finance major next year. I love talking to new people and making friends all over the world, so GBS is the perfect fit for me! As an exchange student with only one semester abroad, GBS is giving me an amazing opportunity to experience both American culture and become friends with other exchange students. My favorite activity so far was either bowling or st. Augustine, and I’m sure there will be many more great events throughout the semester
Gator Guide of the Month - Selina Massman
I was born in Naples, FL and also raised in SWFL to two German parents. I am a 2nd year Marketing Student with a Minor in German and Meteorology. Being surrounded by different cultures was normal to me growing up and I have friends from all around the world. It’s incredible to have the opportunity to learn from others what makes their culture so special and to experience their food and traditions. I am so happy that I have found GBS during my time in college and that I am able to help students from all around the world get used to the American life for a semester. I am forever grateful for the connections I have made and look forward to what’s to come
