Check out some student reflections from our Study Abroad Bloggers and Diversity Ambassadors.


Did you know that 97% of study abroad students find employment within 12 months of graduation, where only 49% of total college graduates find employment in the same period? That means study abroad participants are twice as likely to find a job.
