Peer Mentors are available to help get you started with planning to study abroad. As students who studied abroad recently, they understand the process and are ready to get you started. Talk with a Peer Mentor with a drop-in appointment at Study Abroad Services (MU116 by the coffee shop) or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org!
I was on a partner exchange in Aarhus, Denmark during spring semester 2018. Since I have lived around the Fargo area for most of my life, I was excited to go somewhere far from home and experience a different culture and discover several of Europe’s beautiful countries.
I studied abroad through IES during the Spring 2018 semester in Ecuador. I was in Quito for my first month and then studied in the Galápagos Islands for the remaining three months to utilize my Spanish skills and study biology on the famous islands as well share the experience with my host family and make great friends!
I studied abroad through ISEP exchange in Oulu, Finland during the 2017-2018 academic year. While abroad I traveled to other countries around northern Europe and studied the different cultures of Scandinavia. Studying abroad provided me with experiences and friendships that will last a lifetime!
I studied abroad in Florence, Italy with the affiliate program, ISA, during the fall of 2017. Not only did I learn so much about the Italian food, futbol, and people, but also about myself –how I think, feel, react in different situations. In order to fully understand a new culture, you have to live like the locals do.
