My Experience Abroad:

I studied abroad at the University of Sydney in the fall of my senior year. Although a lot of students don't choose this time frame to go abroad, I decided that it was a unique opportunity that I knew I would regret if I didn't take advantage of it. I chose the university due to its abundance of classes offered that would fulfill credits for my major. Due to a large amount of selection, I was able to take Communications classes that I was interested in. That pushed me to think creatively while leveraging my performance in the classes.

Other Highlights:

  • I was able to make long-lasting friendships from people across the world.

  • I was able to travel throughout Southeast Asia! I had an amazing time trying new foods and exploring cities in Indonesia and Singapore.

  • I went to Melbourne and dined at a Michelin star restaurant for only $8!

  • I went snorkeling for the first time!
