Study abroad will transform your college experience, your future career, and your life. Students who travel learn about themselves, broaden their worldview, and learn how to approach problems solving from different perspectives. Whether you go for a week, a summer, or a semester you will gain confidence, empathy, and cultural awareness, all of which will inform your academic experience and prepare you to enter an increasingly globalized workforce.
It’s never too early to plan your study abroad.
Education major, Kim Moon says of study abroad experience in Nishinomiya, Japan: “Just do it! I know that sounds cheesy, but sometimes you just got to put yourself out there and experience things that you have never done before. I was nervous and almost didn’t get on the plane to leave, but trust me you won’t regret it! When you get there, explore, try new things (food and activities), ask questions. You may never get this chance again so do everything and find as many ways to experience the new culture you are in authentically.”
Psychology major Ramon Hernandez says of his study abroad experience in La Ciudad Blanca Merida, Mexico: “I learned an incredible amount of things during my time abroad, about myself and about how the world works. Being raised in my Mexican culture did help a little to prepare me for the change but once I arrived I quickly realized the difference between being a Mexican-American and being a Mexican national. My year abroad opened my eyes to different possibilities and the diverse array of people and ideas you find in across the globe.”
