We all heard this as we were about begin our freshman year of college: “These will be the best years of your life!” I believed it…at first. After becoming involved on campus and going to events, I still felt like something was missing. I craved more adventure and wanted to find out more about myself. I heard many older students on campus talk about studying abroad and the amazing experiences they had in another country. I realized this was the adventure I had been yearning for.
