Students speak of their experience

Ana V., a double major in French and Political Economy,  talks about her experiences in the Summer Global Internship

“I think that studying abroad in a program like Global Internships, where everyone is working in different industries or with different organizations but still bound together through classes and living together, is very rewarding….meeting the people in my program definitely complemented my experience because I felt like I had a better understanding of different sectors of French culture.”
