“Don’t be afraid of going to an unfamiliar place—the experiences and lessons you will learn will all be worth it. Going abroad was the best five months of my life, so don’t hesitate in anything you do; be all in and at the end you will look back and see how incredible the entire experience was.” 

—Ashley Meier ’19 Electrical Engineering, spent a semester at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia
