Rebecca Fineco, Third-year student, Hospitality Management Major, University of South Carolina shares her experience of how she decided to study abroad:

"When deciding to study abroad I knew I would say hello to so many new experiences, but I didn’t realize I would have to say so many goodbyes. I knew I would of course have to say goodbye to my family and friends, but I said goodbye to so many other things as well ... It is weird to hear your friends making plans that you can’t possibly be a part of because you will be abroad (which is equally as cool). Although I am entirely too excited to study abroad there have been some bitter-sweet goodbyes for sure! I am just so ready to meet new people and take on this exciting, new challenge in my life."
