3 Reasons To Study Abroad

College is a time to grow and make memories. Aside from learning in a classroom, the best learning experience is definitely traveling. Here are the 3 top reasons why you should consider studying abroad.

1. You Get To Travel!

It’s such a great and unreal feeling seeing the images from your history books or movies becoming real in front of your eyes. Imagine seeing the Great Wall of China, The Coliseum, Machu Pichu or the Aztec pyramids for the first time. Interacting and making friends with other people from different countries is a great way to learn about the world.

2. You Learn About Different Cultures!

You get to try different types of food. Even though we live in Los Angeles, "Melting Pot" city where in one block you can eat Chinese food, Mexican food, Greek food and more, it’s never the same as eating authentic food with authentic ingredients from Mexico, or Colombia or wherever you decide to go! Hearing the language and music from other countries besides the U.S. is so invigorating. Lose yourself in the different cultures of the world. 

3. You Start To Become More Independent Than Ever!

You have to learn how to live in a different country, learn how to get around in a different public transportation and the local neighborhood. If you decide to live in an apartment instead of the school dorms, you have to learn to take care of yourself and budget your expenses. Practice for the real world.

Studying abroad is a great learning and growing experience. You get to be out of your bubble and it's a decision that you won't regret. Talk to your school's international office to get more information on which different programs to choose from.
