Student Experiences

Amber Woodford: Sydney, Australia 2016


“After talking to the staff at BGSU and working with their department, they made my dreams a reality. I was able to go to Australia. There, I finished some of my required courses I needed before entering Respiratory Therapy school. While in Australia I was able to skydive, scuba dive, swim with sharks, see the Great Barrier Reef, travel around the East Coast, and visit now my favorite city, Sydney, Australia”.

Kimberly Lentz: Keele University, England 2016


"Studying abroad was a huge leap outside of my comfort zone, but doing so has been the upmost, greatest reward of my life. Do not let fear control your decision, because once you made the decision to go, you will have made one of the best decisions in your life. No classroom experience can teach you what traveling has taught me".

Tyler Anthony: Alcala de Henares, Spain 2016


“Choosing to study abroad in Alcalá de Henares, Spain was one of the best decisions I have ever made.  I improved my Spanish immensely, made many new friends, and fulfilled one of my lifelong dreams.  For these reasons, I plan on returning to Spain with BG to get my Master’s Degree.  This experience changed my life by opening my eyes to a new culture and by providing me with more confidence to open up and explore new things.  Without this experience, I most likely would not be the person I am today”.
