Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): University of Sydney, Australia

Ask me about...

  • Housing abroad: I lived in an Australian dorm called a residential college.  It was a very unique social and cultural experience that allowed me to meet new people and integrate easily!  Feel free to reach out if you're curious about housing abroad (especially if you have questions about housing on financial aid).

My Experience Abroad:

While I was abroad I took courses like Aboriginal Community Engagement and Outdoor Education, which taught me more about local issues while still counting as electives to my Urban Studies major.  I also took Gender Studies courses that counted directly towards my GSWS minor.  

Other Highlights:

  • Going to concerts, beaches, and art shows with local Australian friends.

  • Planning a two-week camping road trip in New Zealand.

  • Traveling to Uluru (a sacred Indigenous area).

  • Hiking in the Blue Mountains and Royal National Park.

  • Learning to surf at Bondi Beach!
