Congratulations on your decision to study abroad! Study abroad is one of the most enriching experiences during your undergraduate career. In addition to gaining valuable cultural and language skills, a study abroad experience will expose you to different ways of thinking and challenge you in new and unexpected ways. In addition to fulfilling academic coursework, students who study abroad become more adept in foreign languages, cross-cultural communications, and gain a new understanding and appreciation for the United States and its culture and government. Lastly, study abroad will provide you with memories and friendships that last a lifetime.
We look forward to working with you to identify and apply to study abroad programs and prepare for your journey.
