6 Ways Studying Abroad Will Change Your Life

Like many before her, our Alumni Ambassador Rachel studied abroad in Rome, and it changed her for life. Here she shares with us the ways study abroad changes your life forever.

Coming home after an amazing study abroad experience can be incredibly difficult. You find that your outlook on life has completely changed, and putting your experiences into words seems almost impossible. Here are a few things I noticed after coming home from my semester in Rome:

1. You’ll never be able to watch a movie the same way again
2. Everything has the potential to bring about nostalgia
3. You save every penny you can
4. You criticize everything
5. Your mind forever lives in two places
6. You find yourself planning your life around the next study abroad reunion
