What skills do you feel you've gained from going on a global program?
Through my France study abroad trip, I was really able to enhance my French speaking skills by speaking to locals and conversing with my host family.
What is one of your favorite memories from your global program?
My favorite memory from my global program was definitely having a picnic in front of the Eiffel Tower on the last day with my friends I made during my program.
What advice would you give a student you is interested in a global program?
My advice is to research and plan ahead of time! It is so overwhelming to be in a new country, and your global program will go by faster than you expect. Make sure to include time to visit all of the places you would like to go to.
