Studying abroad can be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. It allows students the opportunity to learn about the world and other cultures through first hand experiences.
Studying abroad can help you learn to speak another language, to appreciate other cultures along with your own and to challenge yourself. You can learn to take initiatives, communicate despite barriers, handle new or difficult situations, adapt to new environments and appreciate diversity. Moreover, it can be a great path to self-discovery and looks great on a resume!
Choosing to study abroad is one of the most important decisions you can make. To get started, contact Colleen O’Hara, CIE director, at 773-298-3780 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the words of a student ...
"Spending a semester abroad in Tokyo was one of the best decisions I have ever made
... The classes I took were academically stimulating and enriching ... Riding the
train, enjoying the night-life, singing Karaoke and spending time with my friends
were all part of my everyday life in Japan. I would recommend studying abroad to anyone
who wants to expand their worldview and have a great experience."
--Mike Noonan, Tokyo, Japan
