Study Abroad Operations Assistant


Hey there! My name is Malin and I’m a fourth year student majoring in Neurobiology, Physiology, and Behavior and minoring in Linguistics. This will be my third year working for the Study Abroad office and I’m excited to continue inspiring my own passion for traveling in students who come into our office!

My own adventure overseas began last fall when I studied abroad in Córdoba, Spain for four months. While in Spain, I gained Spanish speaking skills, confidence in my own independence, and five pounds from eating all of my host mom’s delicious cooking. Living abroad is an invaluable way to step out of your comfort zone and experience the world from a new perspective. I got to travel to eight countries in my short time in Europe and I learned something new from each place I visited. Studying abroad was by far the best decision I made in college; I already can’t wait to go abroad again and continue exploring the world! There are so many amazing international opportunities out there to take advantage of! Stop by our office and we can help you find the one that best fits your interests.

This quote sums it up best:

“We travel not to escape life, but for life not to escape us.” -Anonymous

Happy travels!
