A piece of advice to future study away students:
Go meet new people! Fellow PLU travelers are helpful during the transition abroad, but avoid sticking with the Lute Group throughout the whole experience. If the opportunity presents itself, spend time with others and form lasting friendships

What surprised her about studying away:
I was surprised at how much I learned about myself while studying away. I realized being away from family (and the “comfort zone” in general) was an excellent opportunity to experience some independence, further understand my desires, passions, and personality, and grow in confidence, character, and faith.
