Mathematics

"Few experiences have the long-term and eye-opening impact as that of studying abroad. My own experience of a junior year in Aberdeen, Scotland was that for me. Rarely having left my northeastern Indiana homeland, suddenly finding myself walking down brick streets that were over a thousand years old was amazing. I traveled all over Scotland, Ireland, and parts of England, competing with my cross country team. During the semester break, I had a month to do a Eurail Youth Hostel tour of several parts of Western Europe. The best time to do this sort of thing is when you are a student – life starts to get complicated rather quickly after that."
