Study Abroad

College Study Abroad can be an exciting, enriching and eye-opening experience where learning extends well beyond the classroom walls. A student who is receptive to new cultural experiences and interested in broadening his or her horizons should consider such an opportunity. Study Abroad requires a mature level of personal commitment and responsibility, independence, attention to detail and acceptance of new and different ways of living. If you bring these qualities to studying abroad, the experience will be an invaluable one.
