Albert Roberson: Political Science; Lisbon, Portugal
In the 30 that days I was in Lisbon, it was a worldly experience meeting new people, learning about a new culture and seeing new places. Meeting people from different countries and exchanging experiences made me all the more better. My advice to any one is to go abroad, don’t go just for the sake of education, go because the world is not one sided, the world is not one race. Go because the world is full of people that you want to know.
Kim Saunders: Nursing, Haiti
I applied for the opportunity to study abroad in Haiti in place of my community clinical which is NUR 331. My experience in Haiti really helped me with educating patients on their health concerns. People in Haiti are very friendly, everywhere you go people say bonju/bonjwa meaning hello/good morning. They really loved to see us there.
Stacey Miner: Psychology & Sociology, Australia
This experience is one of the highlights of my life and I hope it is just the start of my experiences with traveling. This country is absolutely amazing and beautiful and I am anxious to travel around the world to explore other countries and learn about other cultures. I have made so many friends while here and feel like I belong in this country. So, as I leave, I am not saying "Goodbye" to Australia, rather, "See you later Australia!!" or "Hooroo!!" (as they say here!) because I will most definitely be back!!!
Jen Lopes: Criminal Justice, China
It’s a great feeling and a lifetime experience to study abroad. China being on my resume allows me to get extra points on lots of things in terms of jobs or if I apply for graduate school in the future. I would highly recommend that students during their college experience study abroad because you get an idea of what other parts of world have to offer you.
