Favorite Study Abroad Memory: It’s so hard to pick just one! So I’ll share a handful. Seeing the Eiffel Tower from a waterslide in Paris was pretty awesome - so was watching celebrities head into Paris Fashion Week at the Louvre. I constantly miss swimming with penguins on my favorite beach in South Africa, and I’ll always treasure the memory of learning to make my own pasta in Rome. Lastly, I’ll never stop joking about getting lost at night in the gardens of Versailles with my best friend!

Top Advice for Sun Devils Going Abroad: Don't forget about your grades when you're abroad... but don't get too stressed either. Try really hard to live in the moment - take as many adventures, however planned or last-minute, as your budget allows. They'll be such incredible memories. Some of my favorite are things I only found out about hours before they happened!
