Jordan Stephens, BSE.CE 2013, on exchange in Winter 2011

"[I was struck by] the split between diversity and similarities. It is overwhelming to experience a new culture but also realize that people are still the same all over the world. I learned how to adapt and travel which I will continue to learn throughout my life.

I have definitely grown from this experience, I learned independence. I think that the experience has opened my eyes to the fact that even though you can travel half-way around the world you still do not feel that far away.

I would 100% recommend students abroad, Canadians are so respected all over the world and when you travel you learn this first hand. I think it was an opportunity to travel and still graduate on schedule.

Make sure that you have everything 100% organized before you leave, because a million other things pop up as soon as you land."
