Have you ever been curious about other places, cultures, and peoples? We live in a BIG, beautiful, diverse world. There is so much to learn and appreciate from each other. Being a Study Abroad student offers limitless opportunities to experience life in someone else's shoes. Choosing to study in a country not your own can be one of the most rewarding things you will ever do in your lifetime.
Being in a "distant land" can help you find your courage, embrace a new culture, and open your eyes to new beautiful places. I myself have lived in 4 countries around the globe. I loved being part of something bigger than myself and I learned to appreciate the variety within each of my "homes".
You can make your "distant land" your new home as well.
