This past summer, three other sophomores and I participated in the Australian exchange. While we were there we met so many amazing people and got a feel for what life is like for a girl our age in Australia. 618 more words

Many years after my own exchange experience, I enjoy touching base on the value of these programs. The world needs exchange students more now than ever, since relationships are built between people over a cup of coffee, a meal, and a respect for each other's culture. Here's a blog by Le Petit Traveler about why YOU should be an exchange student (this can apply to your children if you are a parent). This is but one student's experience. I am not necessarily endorsing this university, but any program that encourages students to travel abroad and provides the assistance for them to do so safely, whether it's with a college professor who travels with you or you travel to a family who hosts you. Personally, I believe that living with another family (versus living in a dorm with other students from your home country) is a more immersive and challenging experience. The farther you go out of your comfort zone, and the more challenges you face, the more you grow as a person. Bon voyage, and enjoy!
The doors slide open and I roll my suitcases forward, my stomach in knots.
