International Scholars Program (ISP) student Phoebe Gelbard ’20 is currently studying abroad:
"I am a junior studying International Development (BDIC) and Natural Resources Conservation in Chiang Mai, Thailand, through the University Studies Abroad Consortium (USAC). Since August 2018, I have been living here, taking classes at Chiang Mai University (including Thai language and a Thai cooking class where I learned that Pad Thai is much more difficult to perfect than I ever anticipated), and exploring the region of Southeast Asia. From the people to the food to the geographic and cultural landscapes, Thailand is a beautiful, diverse, and welcoming place that I am fortunate to call home for the semester and, hopefully, beyond these five months."

Maria Girardin ’20, currently studying abroad in Spain via the International Scholars Program, writes, "With the USAC program, I have had the opportunity to travel to Barcelona, Madrid, Toledo, Segovia, and to amazing places just around Alicante, such as the Guadalest waterfalls and the Castle of St. Barbara. I also am living with a Spanish family, which not only has forced me to practice my Spanish all the time, but also has aided me in understanding Spanish culture (traditional food, later meal times, religious and political views, etc.). The USAC program also set me up with two jobs: teaching English as a tutor and for a Kindergarten class at a school. Both of these jobs have been not only challenging and fun, but also great experience for me as an aspiring speech language pathologist."
