Memorable Experience:
One of the most memorable experiences of my semester abroad was being able to experience a new culture and lifestyle. I was able to do this by attending different surfing competitions, meeting kangaroos and koalas, and picking up on the Australian dialect.

Benefits of Studying Abroad:
Spending a semester abroad taught me how to live on my own and create my own path. I was able to learn about a new way of life and I became independent. I met amazing people from all over the world that I normally would not have the chance to meet. Studying abroad has contributed to my personal development because I have become more interested in travel and global issues. It has helped me figure out what I want to do with the rest of my time in college. It also contributed to me wanting to travel the country for work and see all different sides of my major.

Advice & Tips:
Do not be scared to go! It is an experience that you cannot have anytime you want. Everyone should consider going if they have the time. It is a life-changing experience. It is the best decision I have made so far.
