Student Spotlights - Study Abroad

Amy Bogucki  | Ireland 2013

"Ireland is amazing, traveling is amazing! Everyone should travel even if it's just for a week. It's a wonderful opportunity to learn more about yourself and the world. Studying abroad has had a huge impact on my life and is something my college experience would not have been complete without."

Matt Pharris  | Ireland 2013

"Engineering is a people business. The role demands that one speak intelligently with physicians, customers, and patients in need. Communication is an essential but acquired skill, and the chance to work with people of different world views helps to accelerate that process. Studying and working abroad gave me that opportunity."

John Rauchenstein  | Denmark 2013

"I had a few circles of friends including classmates, neighbors, and my church. All of these groups were a multicultural mix of people with different backgrounds and personalities which I enjoyed. It was through these relationships that I experienced Denmark, and my experience would have been nothing without them."

Maggie Willenbrink  | Denmark 2013

"Exploring the world is so exciting, and you can learn so much about yourself while doing so. My main goal studying abroad was to challenge myself in a unique way. I would certainly say that I succeeded and would recommend it to anyone else that is even remotely interested."
