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.
