SarahRettigJunior Sarah Rettig studied abroad in Barcelona, Spain, through the ISA Barcelona, Spain: Spanish Language, Liberal Arts and Business program during autumn 2017.

"I believe study abroad is an opportunity that should never be passed up. Travel exposes you to completely new and unfamiliar environments, ways of life, ideas and cultures. Making my way in a foreign country in another language was a huge challenge and gave me greater confidence, independence and whole new view of the world. I think the challenges that living abroad poses and the memories you make on such a journey make study abroad a great opportunity for everyone. You never know how study abroad will change you and enable you to grow."
