Study Abroad Experiences

“The locals were extremely warm and welcoming, telling me all their favorite spots that tourists don't know about.”

Sara G. (James Cook Univ. Australia 2012)


I learned how to live everyday life in a foreign country, travel on my own, and manage my own expenses. I am definitely more experienced and independent.

Jessica Y. (ISI Florence, Italy Fall, 2014)


“With Chinese, there are two aspects, listening/speaking and writing. Just practicing the characters over and over again is the only real way to learn them. Going out into the streets and conversing with locals is the best way to improve.” Read Michael's blog

“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.”
