- My ISA Experience In Seoul01/25/20
One does not fully understand something unless she lives the experience herself. As an undergraduate psychology major, I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in an immersive study abroad program in Korea University, one of the top universities
in South Korea. Through this program, I met lifelong friends and shared meaningful memories that dealt with cultural insights into the Korean culture and the improvement of my communication and language skills. The ISA excursions taught me about key themes related to academia, and these expanded my lens of viewing the world as I saw it. Within a semester of studying abroad, I learned many essential elements of myself and about what I want to pursue in the future. If I could go back in time to before I studied abroad, I would still choose ISA as my program of choice.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
