SIE Travelers

SIE, which stands for Sophomore International Experience, is one of Bryant’s best “study abroad” programs.  “Study abroad” is put in quotations because this is not a typical study abroad program.  First, you have to be a sophomore to participate.  Second, it is only for 10-12 days.  Why do students do it?  Because there are a handful of countries to choose from, you spend about two weeks with a group of your friends, and you receive academic credit.  Some do it to get used to “being out of the country” before they take on a full semester abroad their junior year, some do it because they know they won’t be able to study abroad, and others do it because well why not?  Two girls in particular, Alli and Montanna, traveled throughout China and Singapore/Malaysia and came home with more than they could have possibly ever imagined.  Let’s find out why they loved it so much!
