WHY STUDY ABROAD?

 

Study + Abroad = International Reach

The ultimate combination of cultural discovery, academic challenge, and personal growth.

“That experience changed my life!”

Few times can you say that! Studying abroad does change your life. It also separates you from the crowd. Companies look for people with a global view. Graduate schools want people who’ve seen the world.

You will have a unique cultural experience that will teach you about yourself and the world, allow you to meet people and make friends from other countries, and make progress towards your degree.

Having the opportunity to make academic progress while experiencing another culture first-hand is profound. Meeting people you would have never thought possible, having conversations you could have never imagined, and seeing things that only existed in magazines or on television is a magical experience. Without even realizing it, you will learn more about yourself and your culture than you ever could at home.

Perhaps the most important reason of all to study abroad...it's FUN!!!!

Get rolling now on how YOU can take advantage of the many study abroad opportunities available.
