Laker students, alumni, faculty & staff share their Global GVSU Story.
During 2006/07, I studied at Kingston University London for my
Behavioral Science degree and met the language requirement in
Japanese. During my time in London, I was able to travel around
Europe, work part time at an IT company and received an award for best
essays on British life and culture. Taking part in this study abroad
program prepared me for receiving a Master's degree and working in the
UK for four years. Since then, I have worked and travelled extensively
in China, Japan and Australia. This included holding a research
position at East China Normal University, which has an excellent
exchange program with GVSU.
Your global adventure doesn't have to end with your study abroad
program. I encourage current students to reach out to faculty at GVSU
and their connections overseas before relocating abroad. You can
expand on your experience by working, volunteering or taking up
extracurricular activities to make local friends. I'm very thankful to
GVSU for launching my career and the international friendships I have made.
