Semester Abroad in Hong Kong

"When a few of my friends from Linfield said it would change the way I looked at life I didn’t believe them. I have become a different person in a good way by being in this type of environment with Hong Kong locals and exchange students. I am so glad I picked Hong Kong. It has been such a great experience and one I will always remember. 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."
