Quotes from Previous Study Abroad Participants

"Every student who goes to Linfield College needs to study abroad. It’s a once in a life time opportunity that will change the way life is lived. I have come out a better person with real world knowledge just by living in a country completely different than my own. Having a wide range of knowledge about other parts of the world can only benefit one’s life."

- Daniel Hellinger

"It’s been a wild ride, that’s for sure. It was everything and nothing I expected it to be. It was the best and worst to be so far away from home. It was so easy and so stressful to jump into this new, beautiful culture. This semester feels like it has lasted a lifetime but ended in a blink of an eye."
- Mary Beth Jones

"'All people are the same; only their habits differ. I couldn’t agree more that studying abroad is one of the best ways to truly understand this message."
