“Immersion in another country’s culture does more than help a student’s job prospects, it’s also about shaping the future of your countries and of the world we all share.” ~ Michelle Obama on her 2014 mission to China.
Study Abroad programs are becoming increasingly attractive as more and more college students seek meaningful ways to spend college breaks or explore true diversity of cultures. Additionally, as students return and share their positive experiences, others sign up to head overseas as well.
