Melissa Lee '14 studied for a few weeks in Japan through our GO program during her junior year—and the experience stuck with her.
Where do you want to GO?
Most college-bound students say they plan to study abroad but only a tiny percent go. We remove common barriers to studying abroad or in another area of the United States.
Our cross-cultural Global Opportunities (GO) study abroad program will expose you to different cultures while teaching you valuable things about yourself.
You'll try foods you've never had before. You may learn a different language, meet your new best friend or look at American culture from a new perspective. Our study abroad opportunities are unique and the value to your future is unquestionable.
Fulfill the GO requirement by participating in a traditional semester-long study abroad program or experiencing a shorter study away trip that puts you in an unfamiliar cultural context.
