#PhotoFriday- Yes, we did send some students abroad this semester! Kyle Thorne ’21 is studying at University of Sussex in Brighton, England. She says, "I have been enjoying my time abroad quite a lot! I am lucky because my housing is away from campus in the small town of Lewes. The cases are relatively low here and the surrounding towns. While I still wear my mask all the time, I have been able to visit a few coastal towns as well as visiting Brighton quite a bit.”

“As one of five children, I grew up believing studying abroad was a luxury I could not afford. With the scholarship I received, I was able to defray the cost of my program tuition and used the money I saved to travel around Southern Africa, an experience I will never forget.” -Laura Barkowski, ’19

#PhotoFriday- Yes, we did send some students abroad this semester! Nathan Ng ’21 submitted these photos from his time in South Korea. “Studying abroad has definitely been different than how I imagined it, due to the classes being online and the restriction of not being able to visit other countries, but ultimately I’m really glad I had this opportunity,” he says. “South Korea has really done well with COVID and even though there are restrictions because of it and many events and places have closed because of it, there is still a lot to do! The food is amazing here, as expected, and I feel like my Korean is improving by being here, which I’m really happy about! Overall, it has been a really great experience so far!”
