Ecuador has given me so much I can’t even put it into words. I’ve learned what hard work looks like, I’ve experienced a new, vibrant culture, I’ve met the most kind and open people, and learned what life is really about. The past two weeks have changed who I am. I’m forever thankful to everyone on this trip and so happy to have them through this experience, and now in my life.
Bonjour! During International Education Week in November, students and faculty watched and voted on Study Abroad Video Contest entries from this past year. The winner, Abbey Coughlan from the Class of 2019, documented her experiences in Spain as well as other countries she visited while abroad. The other three entries showcase student experiences in Ireland, Italy and England.
Thank you to all who voted and enjoy!

So, realize that staying in one place is overrated and for what you don’t yet understand, your experiences and true inner happiness will thank you for later. Here are five reasons to travel while you’re young: More…
