Here is what our students are saying about their experience abroad:

“I would say that my study abroad experience in Peru was a major turning point in my life. Not only because I got to know this magnificent Latin American country, but even more for my academic, professional, political, and social education. When I was studying in Lima, among the many things I learned, the one that sticks out was appreciating the social and cultural diversity that characterize both Peru and Latinos generally. The people of Lima made my feel very welcome and at home."

Santiago Valdés Yáñez

Spring 2013 exchange at the Pontifical Catholic
Universidad of Peru

“My incredible time in Russia taught me many things about myself. The different situations I faced made me grow up and realize what type of world we live in. I learned a lot about history and general culture, I got ride of some of my stereotypes, I meet excellent people, and learned how to navigate the real world. I believe you cannot understand another culture with living in it, and that you cannot understand your own culture until you live outside of it.”
