Study abroad can be one of college’s most enriching and life-changing experiences, allowing students to earn credit while experiencing the world up close -- increasing cultural awareness or practicing a language. Study abroad is not only an opportunity for personal growth, it is an investment in the future, as employers increasingly seek applicants with cross-cultural competence and experience.
