Advice from Alumni Nathaniel Powell

November 19, 2013

Nathaniel PowellIn my case, my study abroad experiences were probably the most important thing I did in college. I became reasonably fluent in French, met fantastic people in France and Senegal, and got to travel a lot. It also looked great on grad school applications. I went to Switzerland, and I'd strongly encourage other students to look at graduate school opportunities in Europe. In Switzerland, my tuition for my MA was 3000 USD per year, and I could work half-time as a student and live relatively comfortably on the salary. My situation was the norm there.

I showed up with a seabag and a bicycle, and I spent weekends pedaling to Toledo and other nearby towns. I had never been abroad before, and I quickly learned how to navigate (both physically and figuratively) my way around Spain.
