Lessons from abroad

Study Abroad in Korea

“I consider studying abroad to South Korea one of the greatest decisions that I’ve ever made. It’s funny to think back to how hesitant I was about the whole thing because of how amazing I found the experience to be. Not only did I make amazing friends and experience a brand new culture, but I also got the opportunity to learn from distinguished professors from all around the world. It’s true that the culture shock is a difficult thing to overcome, but once you start to make some new friends and start to go out more, you’ll be sad that you have to come back. This is an experience I can’t recommend enough so if it is something that you’re considering, I say definitely go for it.”

—Zachary Rost, International Business major, Business in Korea program, 2018

Study Abroad in France

“My biggest takeaway from studying abroad is that life is too short not to take chances, explore, and have fun. I’m typically a very cautious person, so studying abroad was a large step outside my comfort zone. Being away from my family, being in a foreign place, and only barely speaking French made me really nervous. However, I ended up making some great friends, learning a lot, enjoying my time abroad, and making memories that will last a lifetime!”

-Corissa Cruzen, Marketing major, ISA France program, 2019
