Study Abroad Changed My Life

You may have heard that more than 60% of students at St. Lawrence University study off-campus for a semester or more, but did you know that only 10% of all US college students nationwide study abroad? Studying off-campus will not only broaden your horizons, but it will set you apart.

Off-campus study will help you:

  • develop intercultural skills;
  • become a more informed global citizen;
  • re-examine your identity and your culture;
  • learn a new language and/or develop cross-cultural communication skills;
  • study a new topic or area of interest or learn about an on-going interest from a different perspective and
  • increase your career prospects! Employers want to hire employees with diverse experience in different cultures.
