"If you study abroad at any point in the future, you will find that you come back knowing more about the world and more about yourself. It is inevitable. And it is supposed to be that way. Our experiences shape who we are and how we view the world around us. Hopefully, they shape us for the better.
Studying abroad not only provides opportunities for new experiences and worldviews; it also provides a unique way to complete an education, accelerates maturity, nurtures independence and selfconfidence, and builds strong lifelong friendships." - Rachel Wood
