If you have dreamed about stepping outside of your hometown, or college town, then there’s no better time to explore your options. Can you fully appreciate your life at college without having stepped off campus to try a new experience somewhere else?

As you run between classes, extracurriculars, and sports, you probably have a limited amount of time to consider the immense value of opportunities like a trip abroad and travel.
