Studying abroad is one of the most life-changing opportunities students can experience. As Indian novelist Anita Desai explains, “wherever you go becomes a part of you somehow.” As you await your study abroad adventure, please reflect on and provide answers to the following questions in 500 words or less:

  • 1. How do you anticipate your experience will build into your character as a student?
  • 2. How do you plan to use your experience to teach others the value of exploring other cultures?
