7. Italy

“My father asked me, ‘Aren't you studying abroad already! Why Italy then?’ Because we need to seize every opportunity, because I am so lucky to study at #pennstate, because #smeal has amazing study abroad programs, because #iessiena will be my home, because abroad is a new book, because I am a global citizen.” @ofmylearnings we need more global citizens like you!

“A year ago I went on a journey of a life time. I will never forget the adventures I had and the friends I made. I grew so much in my time in New Zealand and I can’t wait for the day I can go again.” @maddie2615 you have us tearing up, we are so glad you enjoyed your time studying abroad in Christchurch.

9. South Africa

When you study abroad you are exposed to a culture that might differ from your own, @itslinieeduhh had this to say about her own experience: “Today my heart was filled with joy as I experienced the South African culture. Everyone is soooo happy and they respect one another. I automatically felt the unity in the Langa Township community the moment I stepped foot in Langa. The children there laugh and smile with no care in the world!!! Also, everyone knows one another!!! I found that quite impressive. The streets are filled with colorful Art and talented people...”
