Each year, students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences gain a different perspective of the world by immersing themselves in new languages, cultures and lifestyles through study abroad opportunities.
From Paris to Sydney, these experiences are not only personally and educationally enriching, they prepare students to make a meaningful global impact in their future careers.
“My study abroad experience is something that I will never forget. My photos are important reminders of the places I’ve been, the people I’ve met and the cultures by which I have been charmed,” Megan Gilbert (’18 journalism and mass communication, French) said.
How these students put their adventure into action will make an impact for a lifetime.
Haley Bailey (’18 political science and criminal justice) has studied in Europe twice. She said her conversations with locals have made an impact on her view of the world.
“Studying abroad has prepared me to make a global impact because I have a much better understanding of the world. I know first-hand what the culture is like, what the people are like, what the communities are like. I would never know these things if I wouldn't have studied abroad,” she said.
LAS is committed to providing all students with the opportunity to see the world. The value of an adventure abroad is unmatched, and ensures students obtain the knowledge and skills to become a part of the global community.
Below, students share a glimpse of their one-of-a-kind experiences.
