Fact sheet


Mark Flynn, BSE/CE 2010, on exchange in Winter 2008

"Academically my studies abroad exposed me to new schools of thought in my field. I completed an independent project about low energy housing that was extremely rewarding since this is an emerging field in Canada. While on exchange I was blessed with a wonderful set of friends. They helped me during my months abroad, despite the challenge of overcoming the language barrier. Studying abroad helped to improve my character and expand my thinking—it helped me to realize there is a world out there for the taking.”
