All had in mind to step out of their comfort zone and take on their next step by traveling abroad to experience something new, something different.

Now What ?

Our Alumni Community is spread over 50+ Countries and was featured in Harvard Graduate Monika Lutz’s book Now What.

Now What? What if I want to take my own path? What if I intern now and be certain of my major when I arrive at orientation day? What if instead of living in indecision, I could be living Abroad?
