Ask me about...

  • Taking classes in a foreign language abroad

  • Being the only Penn student at your school abroad

My Experience Abroad:

During my time at SNU, I was able to take classes that directly related to my academic and personal interests. At Penn I'm majoring in International Studies and Business, and by directly enrolling in classes at my host university I was able to expand upon the language and content courses I'd taken during my time at Penn. Studying abroad was definitely one of the highlights of my undergraduate experience, and I am so glad that I did it!

Other Highlights:

  • Living on campus with some of the full-time students of my university

  • SNU Buddy, which was a group of local college students who planned events with exchange students, helped us find our way around campus, and gave us advice about classes/campus events

  • All-you-can-eat Korean barbecue restaurants!
