Four seniors majoring in Education Sciences and one alumna discussed their study abroad experiences at the SoE-sponsored information session on April 9th. During the session, the presenters shared personal perspectives on reasons for studying abroad, experiences meeting and interacting with students from other countries, and best memories of their time in foreign countries.
Presenters included the following graduating seniors:
