There were so many fantastic things about my study abroad experience in France, but not to make this too long I will only choose one. One of my best experiences was getting the opportunity to shadow a French dentist. By social networking, I was able to experience dentistry in France and also becomes friends with a French dentist!

Halle McGehee

Study Abroad Program: Universidad Carlos III de Madrid Exchange Program in Madrid, Spain (Spring 2020)

My favorite thing about studying abroad was the places that I got to go and the friends I made along the way. Even though my time was cut short due to COVID-19, I still made life long friends who I still keep in touch with. The things you experience while studying abroad cannot be replicated elsewhere.
