Shelby Hanson, English Major, Örebro University, Sweden, Semester Exchange Program:
“My experience in Örebro, Sweden was amazing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I always felt at home there, and I even got to meet living relatives of mine during my stay.”
Sara Schlange, Biology Major, Veritas Universidad, Costa Rica, Summer Program:
