Why did you decide to study abroad?

Traveling has always been a priority of mine and ever since high school, I thought Study Abroad was the coolest thing a college could offer.

If you could tell someone one reason why they should go, what would you say?

You will come back much more appreciative and mindful of everything/everyone around you. It will change the way you look at things you used to see every day.

What was your most memorable experience while studying abroad?

It’s between hitchhiking in Croatia and the Northern Lights in Iceland.

What was the biggest obstacle you had to face while studying abroad?

Culture shock – international and from people from other parts of the US.

Describe one or two sights, sounds, or smells that help us understand what your daily experience was like while you were abroad.

Eggs on the street, beautiful green parks, and antique looking buildings a block over.

What advice would you give to students who are about to participate in this program?

SAVE YOUR MONEY and dream big because once you’re there, all of Europe is at your fingertips.

How has studying abroad affected your personal development?

I am so much more mature and open-minded. I never thought I would defend so many cultures over my own as much as I do now. And I never thought I would be so interested in global matters. Now I just feel like I understand so much more than I could have before.
