Study Abroad Profile: Kaeleigh Farrish

Location: 13 countries on 4 continents
Rank: Senior
Major: Marketing
Major: Spanish Linguistics

"Semester at Sea has to be one of the most unique study abroad opportunities available to you. Essentially, you live on a cruise ship and while at sea, attend class. When the ship docks in a port, you have 3-6 days to explore the country as you please. My voyage circumnavigated the globe, visiting 13 countries on four continents. I slept on the Great Wall, visited the Taj, rode a camel in Morocco, camped in the African desert, hiked an active volcano in Guatemala and experienced firsthand the unyielding, unifying determination of the human spirit. It completely changed my life."
