"In just five weeks overseas, I was able to experience a journey that brought me through six cities with their own personalities. I boarded the plane to Brisbane without knowing any of the 80 people who I would be living with. I immediately connected and formed lifelong friendships with amazing people from all over the country. I went on excursions that made my family back home gasping for air while I continued to partake in life changing experiences. The professors in our program made our classes very interesting and enjoyable. I would highly recommend studying abroad to any college student because they have the opportunity to learn through traveling as well as forming memories that will last a lifetime."
