I studied abroad through ISEP during spring 2016 in Sunderland, UK. It had always been a dream of mine to study abroad.  Having the opportunity to meet new people and learn in a new country is one of the greatest experiences of my life.

I went abroad on a faculty led program, Agriculture and the Equine Industry in Ireland in May 2017. It was an amazing experience. Everything we did was hands-on and behind the scenes, so we got a unique look at their culture. It was great to make connections over there and I can't wait to visit Ireland again.

I went on the Italy (politics, art, history) trip at the end of the Spring 2016 semester, and I also studied in Germany for a semester during the Fall of 2017. I have learned so much from my time abroad, but I think the biggest take away for me is to always keep an open mind about any situation. When abroad, you never know what you might get yourself into or where you could end up. Be open and excited about the unknown! The world is big and diverse place, and I have been fortunate enough to experience quite a bit of it!

I studied abroad through API in Granada, Spain, during academic year 2014-15. I have always had a passion for learning new languages, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and my time abroad has provided me with so many opportunities and experiences.
