So, the travel bug has bitten you, huh? We understand! So, where are you going? France, Germany, Italy, Spain? How about China?

Confucius said, “Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” Open your heart and your mind by taking a trip abroad, whether for an academic year, semester or a shorter experience. Traveling abroad will give you a global perspective impossible to learn from books or movies. There is no better way to understand a culture than to embrace it fully by immersing yourself it it!
