Ever since I started at SFU I knew that I wanted to do a semester abroad. Being a little over halfway through my exchange, I can safely say that this experience has exceeded any expectations I had before leaving. I have had the opportunity to immerse myself in another place and culture surrounded by so many amazing people. I have learned different perspectives and different ways of looking at things both inside and outside the classroom. From the rest of this exchange, I hope to continue to learn about Scottish culture and new ways of approaching topics in my classes. To any students considering going on exchange, I highly recommend taking the leap!
