Study Abroad offers students an exceptionally unique opportunity whereby students not only see the world, but also live in another country. Immersion in another culture and language provides an exceptionally thorough learning experience. Not only will students learn about the country they visit, but they will also learn about their personal potential. Students who study abroad will find their previous opinions challenged by their new surroundings.
Study abroad also offers an opportunity to experience new things like trying different foods and fashions. Studying abroad uncovers new places to walk and bike and hike. Challenge yourself to put your toes in as many oceans as you encounter or visit a famous body of water like the Dead Sea. Care to climb? Visit the mountains in New Zealand. Want to swim? Snorkel in the waters of Australia. Try surfing, skiing, or join a hill walking club. Universities often provide student visitors with club sports or occasionally sponsor trips.
The Office of Experiential Opportunity and Post Graduate Success encourages every student to at least consider studying abroad to fulfill the Rosemont experiential learning component by visiting their office and exploring all the possibilities.

Salamanca, Spain Trip - Imran Chaudhry
"Travel opens one's eyes to the vastness of this pale blue dot and more so than I thought. Travel and Education holds your hand as it gently guides you into the world of international travel. The greatest part as a College/University student is the fact that they give you due freedom, and this is the greatest advantage of this trip. Wholeheartedly, I learned more Spanish in the first few hours of being there than any class could have ever taught. It was the same for simply being in Salamanca. Everything was different; the air, the sights, the sounds, the world beneath your feet.
What I'm saying is that I learned more about the world, myself and those around me more than any class or book, because you're there. That same land where Cervantes wrote Don Quixote, the land from where Columbus set sail to America, that same land in which Dali painted the limits of the visual experience. I highly recommend that anyone willing or yearning, travel to Salamanca because it's an experience the likes of which you will never forget."
Salamanca, Spain - Varsha Yerram
"I had the best month of my life in Salamanca and am so grateful for having experienced this trip. Travel and Education made studying abroad so much easier because everything was organized and I was not only able to learn Spanish at the University, but was also able to travel to amazing places. No time was wasted and I got more than I expected out of this trip. It was also a unique experience because I traveled to Spain without a group or any friends. I met such fantastic people within just a few days and now we are really good friends. More people should know that you don't have to travel with a group of friends to study abroad. It's completely fine to go by yourself and it's almost guaranteed that you will make great friends and have such an unforgettable experience."
