Study Abroad Students' Stories

Studying abroad provides a life-changing opportunity for CWRU students, impacting them personally, professionally and of course, academically. When students return home from their program, they are often eager to share their experiences with their peers. Here is a collection of study abroad students' stories and perspectives. 

Global Perspectives

Our Global Perspectives feature interviews with CWRU students who have returned from studying abroad and answer questions about how they chose their program, what it was like to live and learn in another country and how the experience has changed their worldview. Check them out here.

Study Abroad Blogs/Videos

Some of our students share their study abroad experience as its happening by writing blogs detailing what it's like navigating a new country and culture, others speak about and record their stories later. A compliation can be found below.
