       "Studying abroad in Costa Rica was one of the
most
rewarding experiences I have had throughout
my
time at Fox. I was able to grow in my faith,
language skills,
and better myself as an individual.
I wish I could go
back and do it all over again!"

       "Kara spent a year in the Andes region of South America -- first as an intern with Word Made Flesh Bolivia and then studying Spanish with Veritas in Cusco, Peru. As a Social Work and Spanish double major, her experiences abroad led to an immense amount of growth, and now have given her the connections to take a job in that same region after graduating."

Study Abroad Lithuania - Fall 2015

       "Study abroad was one of the greatest experiences of my life. I spent four months in Lithuania, ten days in Russia, and took weekend trips to five other countries. I grew so much in my confidence, independence, and my understanding of the world and cultures around me. I will forever be grateful for how that experience changed my perspective on life, and for how it encouraged me to continue seeking adventure and the opportunity to spread the love of Christ."

       "Study abroad has given me a glimpse into what life can be and given me the courage to pursue that potential whole heartedly. I would not be the person I am today if it were not for the intercultural experiences I have had. I have been lucky enough to know wonderful people and see beautiful things."
