Joy Eckert

“I fell in love with Paris. I got to take classes at one of the best universities in France. I learned so much about French culture and other cultures from meeting other international students. Studying abroad gave me confidence and independence!”

“I got the chance to fall in love with one of the most exciting cities in the world. London helped me gain independence and became a home away from PC. You don't know what you're missing out on until you study abroad, but trust me, you're missing out if you don't! Definitely the best decision I made while in college.”

“Through my study abroad experience in Spain, I learned my capabilities and grew as a person. I don’t think I’ve still fully grasped how much my international experience changed me (for the better). I would go back in a heartbeat.”

Jessica Hatchell

“My favorite experience was being able to travel all over the UK and Europe while I was there. I gained a deeper appreciation for other cultures and people in my time abroad because I was exposed to a different lifestyle and able to spend time experiencing it. Ormskirk and Liverpool became home to me. Studying abroad was a great opportunity for me and I’m thankful for it every day.”

Luke Gilliam

“The most valuable part of my experience in Ecuador was learning more about myself by going out and doing things that I love. The beauty of travel is that you get to see what it is that you really love. When you have to overcome language barriers and fear of failure to do something, you quickly learn what your deepest passions truly are. The opportunity to study abroad will always be one of the things I am most thankful for from PC.”
