My study abroad experience has affected my career goals by making me more motivated. It has given me the confidence to pursue more learning, not just academically but culturally, and to explore the society around me. It has also given me confidence to expand my horizons by networking with more people and sharing ideas and knowledge.

Student SpotlightInternational Hospitality and Management
I decided to study abroad because I wanted to experience something during my college career that was really outside of the box and take an opportunity that would change me and get me outside of my comfort zone.

Study Abroad in Three Words: Will always recommend
Being abroad makes me want to continue to be involved with the global community. I want to continue to see more and more of the world, as well as being actively involved in contributing to the technology that connects everyone despite the distance.
Student SpotlightAdvertising and Public Relations
I made lifelong friends most of whom I am still in touch with today. I tune into Australian news online because I find it intriguing and funny. I learned new marketing trends that I was exposed to when I was abroad before it even trended in the US. Also, when I was down in Brisbane, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was filming down at the Gold Coast! How cool is that?

Study abroad taught me that no matter who you are or where you are from, the sky's the limit. Never let anyone tell you that you can't do something or go where you want to go! Believing in yourself will produce unbelievable results. Learn how to get out of that comfort zone and "become comfortable with being uncomfortable".
