Why should Honors students consider studying abroad?

Studying abroad allows students to embody the Honors College motto of "live, learn, lead." Imagine walking through a crowded street filled with the aromas of the food vendors and fish dealers in Costa Rica, or studying development and social change in Nepal. Honors students who choose to study abroad will live in a foreign country, immersed in a culture different from their own!

Where can Honors students study abroad?

Anywhere! Honors students can participate in Honors faculty-led programs or they can choose to participate in any available program! Visit the Padnos International Center for study abroad advising.
