Connor J Remboldt, Fall 2017 Participant
For me, exploration was the best part of my study abroad experience. Whether it's a trip across town or a weeklong excursion to a neighboring region, you're bound to find something unexpected and exciting waiting for you there. In Finland, forests are easy access, even when living in the middle of the city and within 5 minutes you can be completely surrounded by nature and picking blueberries for an afternoon hike. This sounds like an exaggeration but Finnish cities are planned this way, with numerous walking trails to explore.

My favorite part of this program was being able to meet other exchange students from around the world and learn about many different cultures instead of just one.

Spring 2019 Participant
My favorite part of this program was the people I met through it. It was amazing to be surrounded by people from all over the world! I also loved that the school set up trips for the exchange students to take.
