Kate Hooper, BA/SPAN/HIST 2011, on exchange in Winter 2010.

“The Study Abroad Program was an experience like no other I have had in my twenty-one years. As a person with a passion for traveling, culture, and languages it offered me a taste of everything! Being able to truly live and study in another country not only opened my eyes to global perspectives but I also had the opportunity to learn a great deal about myself. Living overseas broadened my horizons, it changed my life for the better, and I have memories that will last a lifetime. The Study Abroad Program is one that I encourage all to take part in! Thank you UNB for this spectacular opportunity!”
