Why did you decide to study abroad?

I knew I wanted to teach English in Korea since I was in middle school when I was introduced to Korean pop music and Korean culture. I chose to study abroad because I wanted to visit Korea first to know if I truly wanted to spend my future teaching there. I will say now that I think I chose the right dream.

Why should other students consider study abroad programs?

I never thought I would be able to study abroad. I come from a family who could not pay for college, let alone for me to study abroad, so I always thought it was an impossible dream. Wichita State's study abroad program is wonderful for allowing me to pay for my tuition and such at WSU while being abroad, and it has given me the best chance to explore another culture and world.
