Why I Studied Abroad

"Guatemala was amazing; we had so many adventures there was never a dull moment! This trip really opened my eyes to the many cultures there are around the world, even within the same country. Everyone was so welcoming and we built strong ties with each other - they are like family now!"

- Sufia, 2016
