Welcome to UC Davis Study Abroad! Studying abroad is often touted as the “highlight” of college experiences, and I definitely agree with that. When studying abroad, you place yourself in unfamiliar situations, challenge yourself to discover diverse cultures, and immerse yourself in new experiences. By travelling, you open up both your mind and your heart – allowing yourself to truly grow as an individual.
My name is Cathy Wu and I am the Horizons Data Administrator at UC Davis Study Abroad. I love travelling, and have been to 10 different countries and counting! From the subcultures in Tokyo to the awe-inspiring architecture in Rome, every single place I’ve visited is remarkable in its own right. When abroad, there is always something new to discover around the next corner – whether it’s a new restaurant, a hidden art gallery, or even a famous landmark! Most recently, I spent a month in England with my family as I revisited where I lived for my first 4 years – the gorgeous Cotswolds in Southern-central England.
When I’m not working, I love to unwind by watching Netflix and reading about the places I’d like to visit next (I’m thinking Greece!) I would love to talk to you about studying abroad, so please don’t hesitate to come talk to me about any questions you have or even share a story or two. I can’t wait to see you drop by!
