Why study abroad?
Students who have studied abroad typically say it was the experience of a lifetime. It is both challenging and fun, as well as educationally and personally rewarding. Study abroad is an important component of your complete education in our increasingly interdependent world. If real education is the broadening of intellectual horizons and the challenging of stereotypes, then you should study abroad.
While abroad, you can get a more accurate picture of the U.S. and its role in the world. Moreover, the careful selection of a study abroad program will give you valuable perspectives on your field of interest, perspectives that would perhaps be more difficult to acquire in the U.S. Employers want to hire people with international experience, and graduate schools consider study abroad a "plus" when reviewing applications.
Study abroad can be good for you academically and personally no matter what your major. Don't let this opportunity pass you by!
