Student Voices
“This program gave me the physical and emotional distance from home that allowed for me to pursue things I would otherwise have left unconsidered...any preconceptions I had about the artist I needed to be faded away and I am creating without the illusion of boundaries.”
- Kate Lohnes on the UI Irish Writing Program

"Studying abroad encouraged me to adapt to different situations whether it was navigating a language barrier or getting lost abroad. The most valuable thing I learned was how to become more flexible and patient."
 ~ Ashley Morrow, on her multiple study abroad experiences
