Hunter in Japan

Hunter Faulkner

Study Abroad Program: Meiji University, Japan  (Spring 2019)

While studying abroad in Tokyo I made friends with not only many Japanese people, but also met many others from all over the world. I chose to live in a dorm for the international students during my program, and that decision made my exchange much more exciting than if I had lived alone. Getting to experience so many different cultures in this way was wonderful.

Major: Economics

Bria in Costa Rica

Bria Lovin

Study Abroad Program: CEA San Jose, Costa Rica (Academic Year 2018 - 2019)

During my semester in Costa Rica, my self-confidence and self-reliance skyrocketed because I was frequently put into situations that I had to quickly figure out. Ultimately, I appreciated being forced out of my comfort zone and the rewards that came from it.

Major: Spanish & African American Studies
