“The country, and the people have been wonderful from the beginning. The weather has been mediocre, as per expected but I can truly say, Norway is going to be great.”

Madeleine Lawrence, BSc.BIOPS 2011, on exchange in Winter 2010

“There's no point in delaying travel until you retire. There's a big difference between just traveling abroad and actually living and studying abroad. You have to do everyday normal life things and you find more local spots as opposed to only touristy things that you would hit up if you only had a few days to spend in a place."
