Inspiring quotes from students:
"Studying abroad in Tanzania was one of the most incredible, unbelievable, unforgettable, unexplainable experience of my life. The people, the environment, the culture were so amazingly different from anything I have encountered before and I loved every minute of being a part of it."
-Amanda Eckert
"Studying in Russia and seeing the lives of everyday people on the other side of the world was the most remarkable experience of my life. I already cannot wait to go back! St. Petersburg was the perfect place to call home my visit. The beautiful Western European architecture and summer festivities while maintaining a very eastern European culture makes it a unique destination not worth passing up in your travels. We also visited other parts of the country and my favorite trip by far was a weekend in Moscow!"
-Ross Medico
"Studying in China was one of the most awesome things I've ever done. Experiencing a different culture firsthand was really amazing, and I think everyone should go abroad at least once. Study abroad, you won't regret it!"
-William Keating
"My Study Abroad experience in Ireland was a life changing experience. Not only did i get to connect with my heritage, but i had the opportunity to experience a unique unfamiliar culture. I believe my trip has given me a new world view and broadened my horizons like i could not imagine before."
-Owen Murphy
"The Study Abroad program through Stony Brook to Konstanz, Germany was an experience of a lifetime. The trips organized through the program were terrific and the region of the country and surrounding area were beautiful. Definitely looking forward to going back to Germany sometime in the future."
-Joseph Gryzlo
"It was scary being in a country and not knowing a single word of the language. But that's a great fear to have, it makes you see that there is a whole world beyond the US."
-Aaron Taggart
