Chris LeBlanc, Computer Science, on exchange in Fall 2014.

“This trip was honestly the most fun four months I've ever had. Now I have tons of connections all over the world which in turn opens up a lot more opportunity to travel. Not only that but I had the chance to full immerse myself in a new culture/language. It forced me to leave my comfort zone and experience some truly amazing things. If I had the chance I would have done my entire degree abroad.”

Stan Petley, Computer Science, on exchange Fall 2014.

The ability to transcend hundreds of cultural differences with so many people in such a short period of time is truly great. Everyone is unique, many speak different languages, but you all share in common the desire to see the world and meet others. You're all foreigners together, forced to socialize; it's impossible not to bond as one big family."
