Why Study Abroad - Student Testimonials

...I just wanted to let everyone know that the USA Tour changed my life. Yes, it was because of the places we went and the organizations and issues we discussed but ultimately it is because of the people I was with. I will never forget everything you all taught me. Julie Rehnborg, USA Tour 



"Studying in England and getting the chance to travel all across Europe has changed my life.  Simple as that! No other experience has ever taught me so much about other cultures, my own culture and myself. The chance to look at America from the outside was something that all college students, and all Americans, should take advantage of. "
Andy Weyand,  Edge Hill College

"Traveling with the Freedom Road Program (Fall 2001) made my BW experience. Learning about America's Civil Rights expanded my understanding of U.S. History and culture. My advice to any incoming students is...study abroad or away during your college experience." Andrew Higgins, USA Tour-Freedom Road
"Studying abroad is the best favor I ever did for myself. I believe there are joys and lessons that are unique to the experience of travel; and certainly the people I met were unique. I'm blessed that BW has given me this experience, especially in these times when confusion and miscommunication seem to be such an epidemic."
Katy Michel, University of Hull

"Learning about the characteristics of people in foreign lands in turn taught me a great deal about myself. I realized not only what distinguishes me from students sitting in China, but also from the students sitting next to me at BW." 
Stacey Torma, Discovering China

"Studying abroad made me realize that I can do anything that I set my mind to. I got to meet many wonderful people and do things like, snorkel in the Great Barrier Reef, that I never thought I would be able to.  Studying abroad has also helped me to have a more global perspective on issues and it changed my life. I made many wonderful memories that will last a lifetime."
Becca Thomas, University of the Sunshine Coast 


"Seeing the world through the eyes of a different culture is fascinating and made me think of my actions in a new way.  The world has so much to offer in culture, people, history and experiences--studying abroad is the best way to take advantage of all of them!  Whether I was snow-shoeing in the Alps, attending Easter Mass at the Vatican, riding a gondola on the canals of Venice or climbing a volcano in Sicily the sights of the world are forever ingrained in my mind and heart.  Coming back, I am a different person with new goals and aspirations and I'm ready to take on the world!  Experience the world through your own eyes--study abroad!!!"
