Here's what Julia, a Global Learning ambassador, has to say about her experience:
I am a senior studying Materials Science and Engineering with a minor in Music. At a young age, I used to stare out my bedroom window and imagine myself traveling around the world. In my sophomore year, I got that chance by spending a semester at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. While abroad, I experienced new cultures, met lifelong friends, and gained a stronger sense of self confidence. As an ambassador for the Office of Global Learning, I want to encourage other students to have their own amazing experiences abroad. My time abroad inspired me to start a minor studying the music of non-western cultures. As I prepare to graduate, I am even considering going back to the U.K. for my Master's degree, and to eventually start a career engineering renewable energy technologies around the globe.
