Studying Abroad Benefits

Published 04/26/2011 Living in a foreign country, having a unique learning experience and college stories you will not find here at Shippensburg University. However, studying abroad can help you achieve those things. Not everyone has the opportunity to go abroad, whether it is on vacation with your family or with your friends. But what could be better then using your education as an excuse to venture outside the borders of the U.S.? College students today have such great opportunities, but many do not know enough about those opportunities to be able to take advantage of them. Many may say, “Well in my major I do not have time to study abroad and graduate in four years.” But what students do not know is that most majors allow and can easily fit studying abroad into a four-year graduation plan. Some students worry that the cost is too much.
