Hometown: New Glarus, Wisconsin
Program: Liverpool Hope University
Location: Liverpool, England 
Semester Abroad: Spring 2012
Major: Music Liberal Arts

Memorable Experience:
Performing professionally at The Cavern with a band called The Good Intentions. To be on the same stage as legends such as Jimmy Hendrix, The Who, The Beatles, etc was sublime.

Benefits of Studying Abroad:
The benefits are endless, mainly being the personal development as an independent person. I was in charge of my experience and I wanted to get the most out of it through planning my own trips, getting out and exploring my city, and making many great new friends and connections. Academically I have made a shift to a more contemporary music program and I aspire to graduate with my foot in the modern music industry. On a professional scale nothing yet has come close to what I achieved as a performing musician while abroad. The opportunities were endless and I made connections which will be indispensable down the road as a working musician.

Advice & Tips:
Stop twiddling your thumbs and DO IT. Find a program that caters towards your interests and start planning. The sooner you set the date to go, the sooner you'll be rewarding yourself to possibly one of the best experiences of your academic career.
