Thoughts from a Former Exchange Student

"I would highly recommend studying abroad to anyone who has the opportunity to go. It has changed my life in so many different ways. I am much more independent, traveled, and cultured as a result of the fantastic experience. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.”
