Featured Student Abroad

 

"This was my first time out of the country and it was so eye opening. This trip was truly amazing. It was so interesting to see how international companies functioned day-to-day. I also learned so much about other cultures, and I am so grateful for that. I can’t wait for the next opportunity to go abroad."
