Student Testimonial: “Applying to study abroad was something I did on impulse that quickly became my reality. It was an instinct I'll never regret, and an experience I would trade for nothing else. The lifelong bonds I have formed, unforgettable memories I've made, and totally Instagrammable things I've seen are what make my experience priceless.” –Nora Kubiaczyk ’18
