Why did you choose to study abroad? 

I wanted to experience something new and travel on my own.

What did you learn about yourself?

I’m a leader and someone has to be, so why not me?

What was one of your favorite parts of your program?

Traveling to Cinque Terre

What advice do you have to future study abroad students?

Take chances, meet the locals, don’t stress

How did your study abroad experience prepare you for your future career?

Well I’m not a business major, but it definitely opened my eyes to new opportunities and I learned a lot.

Were you surprised by anything during your time abroad?

How different our cultures were

How were your classes abroad different than if you would have taken them at NC State? Did you take any field trips or do anything outside of the traditional classroom?

They were a lot shorter, but I felt more focused and I think overall, I did better in the classes

Would you do it again?
