For the Sophomore class, decisions about whether one will go abroad or not are approaching. Applications are due, conversations with parents and peers will inevitably happen, and some minor soul-searching will occur. We asked our upperclassmen writers give some advice to their past, sophomore selves.
- You’ll miss your friends who go abroad a different semester but that shouldn’t be a determining factor in when you want to go.
- The best perspective I ever got before going abroad was: this is one of the only times in your life when you’ll have abundant time to do just about whatever you want in a completely new place. It made me more confident in deciding to take risks and learn.
