Real Stories from Real Students:

Being an exchange student has changed me for the better, it has helped me figure out what I want in my life, and it has helped me grow as a person. I will never forget all the good friends I have made this year and all the values I will carry with me for the rest of my life. When I look back at this year, I will be able to look back at it with absolutely no regrets. Because I did it.
