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.
