Hello everyone! My name is Katie Yoo and I am a fourth year majoring in Communication. Before my senior year started, I participated in a summer study abroad program offered by the UCD: Design in Europe. The program visited UK and the Netherlands, and it was so fun to not just stay at one, but multiple amazing major cities.
My summer program lasted for a month and I traveled afterwards. The total experience abroad barely made two months but I had an incredible time visiting seven different countries! Not only was the whole experience fun and educational, like the program promised, but I have also gained new perspectives of the world and growth in myself. The best part is that now have an idea of which countries to revisit in the future! The experience really sparked new interest in Europe and traveling for me.
Study abroad programs are amazing opportunities to start traveling and it is so easy. Traveling as a student is an awesome package deal! Just to list few benefits, student discounts are everywhere, school provides financial aid, you have your itinerary from beginning to end, you are with an expert, you make friends, you learn inside and outside of your program, and so much more is offered! You can start small like me. As summer abroad was the right decision for myself, we will help find and guide you through your own perfect one.
Adventure is out there!
