Student Experience

Study abroad is a wonderful way to practice using a second language, experience a new culture, and see some of the amazing sights outside of the US. Listening to lectures about a foreign country is not enough; you have to get firsthand experience before you will start to realize what it's like living somewhere that's so different from the US. Making friends with people abroad is a great way to broaden your understanding of how the world works, and you will go home feeling much closer to the part of the world you visited.
