Alexis is a great resource to Nursing students on her campus and promoter of study abroad in general. She and a classmate served at the INDY International Festival as part of a two-hour panel. Alexis has also spoken with Nursing students about how they can make study abroad work within their major requirements and timeline. Alexis said that her favorite cultural activity during her time in Santiago, Chile, was watching the Copa America matches.

Congratulations, Rita & Alexis!
