What our past study abroad students had to say...

It was my first taste of independence, and it was exciting. I learned so much about my own life, about culture, about friendship, about necessities, about family.

MikeHarper College Spring 2014

Traveling around Ireland and Europe and getting to visit places that I had only ever dreamed of was absolutely amazing! I gained a deeper appreciation for other cultures and I have a more worldly view of things.
