Class of 2016
Hometown: Ballwin, MO
Majors: Transnational Studies & Political
Science Minors: German, Psychology & Security Studies
Faculty Led trips to Germany, China, & Mongolia (Summer 2013)

"Taking a faculty-led study abroad course is an excellent opportunity to experience the world in a meaningful way. The journey begins long before you boarded a plane with the seminar components. I gained insights into history, politics, and culture throughout the seminars and when I was finally abroad I understood and felt the significance of the places we visited. These trips were not "touristy", there were actual learning objectives. I appreciate the unique opportunity of connecting with my professors while guided my learning. I would definitely recommend a faculty-led trip to a student of any interest." -Amelia
