Education Abroad Program

Studied in Madrid, Spain/ Studied in Marsh Harbour, Bahamas


Traveling has always been a core part of my life and even before I began attending CSU, I knew that I wanted to study abroad. At the end of my sophomore year, I chose to push myself out of my comfort zone and attend the Marine Ecotourism trip, which gave me the opportunity to live on a boat in the Bahamas (and go snorkeling with the local sea life every day!). For my semester trip, I studied in Madrid, but I took my time abroad to fulfill my desire to travel Europe and decided to country hop as often as possible. Along with creating lasting memories, study abroad gave me a chance to grow, meet new people, and experience things I never could have imagined possible. There’s so much to see in the world, and studying abroad is a great way to see it!
