Why study abroad?
Country: South Africa
Major: International Studies
"I really want to work internationally, mainly with the UN. I would love to work with kids, so while I was there, I got to work in a township through an English literacy program for kids. We tested them at the end of four months, and all of them had done so much better than when they started."
Major: Psychology, Spanish
"You can learn a language in a classroom, but you don't get the conversational experience that you get while studying abroad. I'll use my study abroad experience by constantly speaking in the languages I learned. With Spanish, I continue to help out with a program called EDUCA, which is where I help people who don't speak that much English. With Chinese, I talk to a lot of Chinese students at USI."
Major: Biology (Pre-Med), International Studies
"The biggest way my Japanese trip changed me was I became a lot more self-reliant, I would say. It was also a great way to meet people from around the world and to experience different cultures."
