Quotes from Students
"My study abroad experience was the most important part of my Linfield experience. Being in Korea, I was able to meet people from all over the world. Also, because Korean customs are so different from home, I was really forced to learn a different culture. I really feel that going abroad has internationalized me. I can truly say I will never be the same."
- Nickolas Brown
