  1. Hi All, I’m Katie in the ECSU Study Abroad office. I’ll be interning this semester and love being here! I studied abroad in Australia, which was the best thing I’ve done in my life. Then I taught English in Japan for almost 2 years, and now I’m at UConn working on my master’s degree. You can reach me anytime at katie.michel@uconn.edu, or stop in to the Study Abroad office to say hi on Wednesday mornings or all day Friday!

    Ciao tutti! My name is Kyle Droniak and I studied abroad in Milan, Italy this past Spring 2012! No words will ever describe the time I had abroad. I couldn’t have done it without the help of Dr. Petoskey and the study abroad staff. They made the process a lot easier and helped keep me on track. It was by far the best decision I made as an undergraduate student at Eastern. I went by myself, knowing very little italian and now have more friends and knowledge of the language because of it. While abroad I also visited Rome, Venice, Florence, London, Paris, Dublin, and Budapest. I definitely recommend studying abroad as an undergraduate student so that you can gain more of a global perspective and have an amazing time doing it! I am now a Senior at Eastern majoring in Business Administration with a minor in Psychology and am so glad I got to experience life in a country I’ve always dreamt of visiting. Make your dreams a reality!

  3. Hello mates! My name is Alex and I studied business and economics at the University of Manchester in Manchester, England during the spring 2014 semester of my junior year. I used Global Links Abroad to get in touch with my university, and had an incredible time experiencing the British education system, meeting new people, and experiencing Europe for the first time! While I was there, I lived on campus in a dorm that allowed me to make new friends, and expose me to much more than I could have been able to figure out by myself. By doing a bit of research, and being resourceful with the students around me, I was able to join sports teams, participate in the hiking club, travel to other countries, find great restaurants, and discover great local music venues.

    My favorite experience abroad came from joining a rugby team, and getting the chance to work and play side by side with native English players. Through my team, I was able to travel to Portugal, and establish relationships that I hope to maintain for the rest of my life.

    My biggest tip is simply to get involved on campus. By joining clubs and organizations, unforeseeable opportunities, such as new friends, places to travel to, and experiences will begin to open up!

    The study abroad office at Eastern was a big help in making my whole experience happen, and I thank Dr.P and her staff for making everything run smoothly!
