Study Abroad Experiences
“I learned how to deal with struggles on my own. It taught me how to adjust to a completely foreign environment with new people, things, and ideas. I learned how to learn from them and they learned from me. It opened up my eyes a lot, to say the least.”Sara G. (James Cook Univ. Australia 2012)
