Hi Study Abroad fans!
This is our second post in a series about making study abroad a reality. We've asked our friend Shannon to tell us about how she planned and prepared for studying abroad.
Shannon studied abroad in Paris this past summer and gave us a few awesome tips to get started.
Shannon was nice enough to let us ask her some questions about the application and planning process as well.

study abroad and then I had to fill out even more forms to apply to the program
I wanted to be apart of in Paris. It was a challenge managing my time and
making sure not to miss any deadlines.
StudyAbroad.com: How did you find funding for your trip?Shannon: I didn't expect so many resources to be available to me
financially! I had no idea that I could ask SGA for money and I didn't have a

am excited to go to London next Fall, I will make sure to apply for every

StudyAbroad.com: Where did you go for help?Shannon: Whenever I needed help I went to the study abroad adviser at

email her, or visit her at the International Center.
StudyAbroad.com: How long did all of this take?Shannon: The whole entire process probably took me between 2 and 3
