Hannah Turner - Spring 2017
Walk-In Advising Hours: Wednesdays 12:30-2:30pm
Major: Mathematics Secondary Education
Reasons for Pursuing the International Studies Certificate: I want to gain global experience and knowledge to view my future profession from an international perspective.
Countries Visited: England
Favorite Study Abroad Memory: The tour companies in England offer day trips to amazing places for a very affordable price. One weekend, I decided to sign up for a trip to Oxford and the Warner Bros. Studios on my own. It was so nice to wander the town of Oxford for a few hours, exploring the different colleges, visiting the local museums, and window shopping at all the old bookstores, and, of course, being a huge Harry Potter nerd, I was beyond delighted to view the movie sudios and their countless props and sets. I'm so thankful that this study abroad trip allowed me to take personal excursions like this one.
