Living and studying in London, England was one of the most rewarding decisions I have ever made. This experience abroad afforded me the rare opportunity to live in another country, experience a new culture and learn about myself. I am confident that my time studying abroad was a life-changing experience and one I will never forget. Unfortunately, fewer than 10 percent of all U.S. college students study abroad, and some people fail to see the true value. I am a huge advocate of the experience because in addition to travel, there are countless benefits to studying abroad that are often overlooked. During my semester in London I was challenged both academically and personally as I learned to survive and thrive in a foreign city. I was exposed to new people, new ideas, a new way of living, a new culture and a new way of viewing the world.
