This message came to my inbox yesterday from our Center for Global Programs and Studies. There are opportunities to apply to our WFU Houses in London, Venice, and Vienna – and some reflections from students currently abroad.
Study abroad is something I always encourage my advisees (and any other students I have the chance to meet with) to consider. Going to another country for a semester expands your mind exponentially and you learn things about yourself, about other cultures, and you make memories that last a lifetime. Even if you are a P’19 of a first-year student, it is not too soon to encourage your son or daughter to consider whether an abroad experience is something to work towards and plan for.
Read some of the reflections from students below and see their experience in their own words. It makes me miss my own days in the WFU Dijon program.
