Semesters abroad: Summer 2019

Summer program: Madrid Summer Session

What did you wish you had known before going abroad? Just do it! I went abroad and I knew absolutely nobody else going and I came back with friends for a lifetime. I remember anxiously waiting in the gate of my departure flight to see if somebody I knew was also getting on, yet those fears of anxiety turned into disappointed when we had to leave Madrid. Going abroad opens your eyes to the world and the increasingly globalized world this perspective will help you in any career or life endeavor. When else can you travel the world in your life! Get out of your comfort zone and going abroad will make you grow in different ways you never thought you could.

Semesters abroad: Summer 2019

Summer program: Madrid Summer Session

What was your most valuable experience abroad? The most valuable abroad experience is the process that I start building up deep connection with my host family. Language barrier does not stop us from communication and being close. We exchange note cards to express our feelings and I learned that love can be expressed by so many different ways. It is a time to learn, not only a new language but also how to embrace love from different cultural background.
