What skills do you feel you've gained from going on a global program?

I definitely feel more equipped to go abroad. Before I went on my abroad trip to London, I had never been overseas before. This trip encouraged me to plan more trips abroad and took some of the anxiety away from going overseas. This trip also helped me improve my planning and time management skills.

What is one of your favorite memories from your global program?

One of my favorite memories from my abroad trip to London is when a few of us visited the Tower of London. I really enjoyed learning the history of the Tower and highly recommend participating in one of the free tours. However, the best part of my visit to the Tower was spotting the actor, Harvey Guillen!

What advice would you give a student you is interested in a global program?

Make a list of activities you want to do before you get there. Even if you know you won't get to everything on your list, it's good to have something to reference if you have unexpected downtime. This also saves you the time and hassle of trying to figure out what to do when you're actually on your trip.
