    Lucy Brown

    I thought about studying abroad since high school - I knew it was something I wanted to experience in my life. I chose to go to Croatia, primarily because the program and courses offered were exactly the courses I would be taking in Rochester, and I would be amongst many people in my same major, but in a completely new country!

    When I started my college career, having the ability to study abroad was one of the most important aspects of choosing a college.  Traveling abroad has been a part of my life since I was very young and studying abroad gave me the opportunity to see the world and continue my studies.

    Miles Hood

    I decided to study abroad because I’m from Rochester and after being in the same city for 21 years I needed a chance to see something new and I needed a refresh on life in general. 

    Personally, I have gained so much from the experience. I have so many friends all around the world now and have plans to return to these locations and see more in the future. I was also able to explore who I was and what I wanted in my life going forward.
