Learning Abroad Student in Czech Republic

"Studying abroad has allowed me to excel in my personal growth through the different cultures and experiences that come with being abroad. You never realize how truly diverse people and places are until you get first hand exposure to those things. The diversity gets you out of your comfort zone and into a place of learning and understanding of others." - Greg Laws, Junior Business Major, semester study program in Prague, Czech Republic
