CHESTER, PA (12/02/2019)-- Undergraduate students at Widener University returned home after spending the fall semester abroad in countries across countries in Europe and in Australia. The international learning experiences allowed students to gain a global understanding and prepare them for careers in an increasingly diverse and interconnected world.
"Widener's long-term study abroad program provides students with life changing experiences," said Kandy Turner, director of International Student Services and Programs. "Studying in a foreign country is an excellent opportunity for students to grow both professionally and personally through honing critical skills, such as adaptability and independence, as they prepare to enter into their respective fields. These opportunities complement their academic work on campus while introducing them to different cultures, customs and traditions across the globe."
Among the students was Megan Welding. Welding spent the fall semester in Austria.
Welding is a senior psychology major and a resident of Turnersville.
