  Traveling on an OSU faculty-led study abroad program was an amazing experiential learning opportunity and the best decision I have made in my college career. Because of my travels, I now have a family across the world who inspire me every day to be resilient, value the opportunity I have to pursue my education and to realize my potential to make real sustainable change in the world.
