“I am a French and political science major. I had already studied French in France during a Winter Term course, and I knew that I wanted to incorporate both of my majors and visit a new country. Global Education was able to help me find the program at Vesalius College in Brussels. It’s really the perfect combination of my majors and a new international experience.
I became more confident because of my time abroad. Everything was foreign. I survived, and I had a wonderful time! I came back to Franklin more assured of myself because of challenges I overcame while abroad.” – Samantha Gutierrez ’17
“Studying abroad makes you a better person because you are forced to see the world from a very different perspective. It can be difficult and strange to learn a language that is not your own and to understand a culture which may share some similarities as well as vast differences. It is a life-changing experience, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
My experience in Ireland was amazing and easily one of the best decisions I’ve made at Franklin College. Studying abroad gives you a new perspective on nearly everything, as well as a certain independence you can’t really find without traveling and living in another country on your own.
More than anything, the experience gives you a new perspective on life. After studying abroad, I don’t see traveling as impossible anymore. Places like Belfast, London, Edinburgh, and Dublin are all new, beautiful places full of history and incredible stories, stories that only make me want to travel and learn more.” – Carley Campbell ’16
