  • Alexys Lopez on UMD-Winter: Italy (CLAS/ARTH)

    "I had a level of independence that allowed me to explore Italy at my own pace, but still, a community of my peers to socialize with. The perfect mix of support and freedom helped me get the most immersive experience while learning new course material."

  • Jordan Bellamy's exchange with Amsterdam University College

    "I am one of those people who never thought they'd study abroad. I'm here to tell you that it is not only possible, but it is the most enriching experience that I have ever had in my life."

  • Sophia Wooden on Maryland-in-Barcelona

    "I grew a lot in my cross cultural business skills and in my Spanish speaking skills while abroad. My network expanded when I embraced the community around me."

  • Elana Naide's semester in South Africa with CIEE

    "Throughout my semester, I built a support system for myself, with space to talk about experiences and to ask questions. I also watched and became a part of communities, and eventually the 8000 miles between me and my home felt like zero because my community in Cape Town felt just like one."

  • Jack Burke on UMD-Winter: Japan and South Korea

    "Studying abroad really came to bring me a new sense of how my skills could be used internationally rather than domestically, and really pushed me to consider a more global view of business."
