Time Abroad: Fall 2006
Major: Computer Engineering
As an engineer, I have a demanding program that wouldn't allow me to study abroad until senior year. I also wanted to enter the MBA program, which starts my senior year, so studying abroad did not seem so viable. But by planning ahead, and re-arranging my schedule, I was able to fit in both programs.
With my family and friends so far away from me, and relocating to a completely foreign country, study abroad was a new level of independence for me. I can still remember the excitement of traveling to New Zealand over spring break, and trekking the south island with just a backpack and no plans!
