On your way to class, you gaze up at high rises, you pass by a white sandy beach, and turn the corner to see a marble sculpture of a man surrounded by horses. While you may not see these views on your way to class in the U.S., you could in Tokyo, Japan; Gold Coast, Australia; or Florence, Italy. Perhaps the best way to travel while studying is through study abroad programs offered by your school or outside companies.
College is daunting as it is—four years of studying that will decide your career and future (usually), so, attending school while surrounded by people that don’t speak your language is even more daunting.
However, studying abroad can widen your horizons, expose you to a new culture, and refresh your learning experience.
On our social media sites, we will share some study abroad programs, explore the pros and cons of studying abroad, and explain some key parts of what it means to study abroad.
