Hometown: Mishicot, Wisconsin
Program: University of the Sunshine Coast
Location: Maroochydore, Australia
Semester Abroad: Fall 2010
Major: Communication & Media Studies
Memorable Experience:
Meeting so many different people from around the world. I lived with three other people that were all from different countries. My female roommate is from Holland, one of my male roommates is from Norway, and the other male roommate is from Australia. My roommate from Norway has been teaching us some Norwegian, which has been a fun experience.

Benefits of Studying Abroad:
Some of the benefits of spending a semester abroad are getting the opportunity to meet new people, experiencing other cultures, and being able to experience what another country has to offer. Studying abroad has helped me to understand other cultures much better. Living in Australia, you really get to know the Australian way of living.

This experience has helped me to grow as an individual because I came to a place where I knew no one. I put myself out there and meet new people, which has made me more confident in my communication with others.

Academically, studying abroad has assisted with getting to know some Australian students and learning how another culture interacts in the classroom and in society.

Professionally, I believe that studying abroad will help me in the future in getting a job. Having an experience abroad opens up opportunities for you. I do not have any set plans for what I want to do after I graduate, but my experience opens doors for me to possibly come back to Australia and find an internship or even a job. 

Advice & Tips:
If you want to study abroad, do it! This is an amazing experience, and I am so happy I chose to do it. Be sure you have enough money to study abroad. If you are planning on traveling, you definitely need more money than you think. Save your money before you study abroad, and you will be happy that you have the extra money while abroad. This way, you are not limited to what you can do. You can still have fun if you do not have a lot of money, but money is a huge factor.
