Here Everyone Goes! See the World and Make a Difference
Did you know most college-bound students say they plan to study abroad but only a tiny percent actually go?
We remove the barriers to studying abroad, or in another area of the United States, that you may encounter at other colleges.
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 by experiencing a shorter study away trip that puts you in an unfamiliar cultural context, even one right here in the United States.
The only question is: Where do you want to GO?
How to complete GO requirement
Explore your options by looking at the different trips created by the GO office.
