Here, recent study abroad participant Tamla Morales '17 talks about how studying abroad impacted her life at Lasell.
"You need to know who you are in this world; studying abroad shows you this, while having the most extraordinary experience of your life. To not go abroad is downright foolish- use your head, seize this opportunity, and just go." -Olivia Ture (Florence, Italy)
"You cannot live to the fullest unless you step outside of your comfort zone, so study abroad and start living." -Samantha Dalias (Florence, Italy)
"You may think it's too difficult and scary but by the time you leave, it will have not only made you stronger but opened your eyes."
"Study abroad will change your life. It will make you more independent, self-reliant, and be the best few months of your life." -Patricia O'Connor (Dublin, Ireland)
"I did things people dream of: skydiving, feeding sea turtles, living on the beach. I did the things people won't even try. I'm proud." (Gold Coast, Australia)
"It is the coolest thing you will ever experience! Studying abroad made me grow and change into a better, more confident individual." -Kate Condon (London, England)
"Being able to live in a different country was the best experience of my life. You are able to meet people from all walks of life that you never would have been exposed to before, and that can open a lot of doors for you. Studying abroad is something every student should participate in regardless of [their] major."
"Rugby World Cup 2011. I traveled to a country not knowing one thing about a sport that is on the rise in the U.S. I came home a diehard All Blacks fan. Touch. Pause. Engage!" -Diane West (New Zealand)

"Studying abroad gives you the opportunity to meet and connect with people all over the world. These bonds you make last a lifetime!"

"I literally traveled every weekend. I visited 10 countries in 4 months on a $3000 budget. And I'm glad I spent every cent." -Diana West (Salzburg, Austria)
