Costa Rica was the greenest, most beautiful place I have ever seen. Nine days in this picturesque country was just not long enough.

TRAVEL: Explore, Embrace, Learn and Live
When working to serve others, one becomes grounded on values that truly matter in life, allowing people to find themselves through selflessness.
Overall this journey to Costa Rica was amazing and I don’t want to change a single thing about it. We saw so many incredible things, met so many people and really learned what it means to be a good traveler.
I never wanted to leave Paris. I came back to the US craving the buttery croissants and Nutella crepes, and wishing that I could eat duck confeit meal every day of my life.
When I registered for An Sc 499A, I thought I knew what I was getting myself into. After all, a course titled “Normandy France Equine Industry Studies” seemed pretty self-explanatory. But I never would have guessed that I could learn so much or that I would have so many incredible opportunities in one semester and a 10 day visit to France.
Amazing trip, to an amazing place, with amazing people!

It is experiences like these that help shape who you are; I will never be the same person that I was before I went to Africa.
This summer, I had the opportunity of a life time. Never before would I have thought that I, Kate Bassett, would find myself in Seoul South Korea. But Hey!! I did, and it was worth every bit of it.
Ireland was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget this experience or the people I became friends with!
Leeds was the perfect city for me. Leeds Uni is the size of Penn State, so the campus felt a bit like home. I’m really glad that I decided to take go out of my comfort zone.
As a study abroad student in U.S from Malaysia, studying in Paris is a truly special and wonderful experience.
To this day I will say, nine days was just not enough.
I’m amazed by all of the unforgettable experiences we packed into just ten days...
I’ve learned that traveling is the best way to grow as a person. The different cultures, people, language and environment allow one to step outside their comfort zone and really explore every opportunity.
1 country. 40 days. 14 Penn Staters. Millions of chickens. I lived in rural Tanzania for a month and am grateful for every minute I spent there.
As well as the desire to learn more about my roots, Ireland gave me the realization that no matter how big the world is, no matter how far apart people are, no matter how different the culture is, there are always those similarities that people share and can relate to each other with.
