David Nguyen

Area of Study: Business Administration

Where I Studied Abroad: Seoul, South Korea

About David: I am a third-year business administration student with concentrations in supply chain management and international business. I studied abroad through ISA in Seoul, South Korea, in the Fall of 2021. Being abroad allowed me to experience café-hopping like no other and I found that I enjoyed mundane tasks, like walking and commuting, more when in a slower-paced culture than the US! I just want to stress the importance of binding together with friends while abroad. The experience is much more fun when you have people you can go explore with!
Claudia Rohner

Area of Study: Psychology Major, Business Administration Minor

Where I Studied Abroad: Aix-en-Provence, France

About Claudia: My name is Claudia Rohner and I am a 4th year student studying psychology and business. I studied abroad with CEA, and attended IAU university in Aix-en-Provence, France in the Spring of 2021. While abroad, I learned how I need to manage my time best. This helped me with school, traveling, and spending time with friends. I learned how much time I needed to set aside for each part of my life to keep myself happy and my grades up. Learning time management is important in college because it helps you set goals and limits you can carry on for the rest of your life. Covid-19 was a large barrier to my study abroad experience, but with persistence and extra paperwork, I was able to find a running program with in person classes. 
Abi Tekeste

Area of Study: International Studies and Political Science

Where I Studied Abroad: Todos Santos, Mexico

About Abi: My name is Abi Tekeste, and I am a third-year student studying International Studies and Political Science. In Fall 2021, I had the opportunity to study abroad in the town of Todos Santos, Baja California Sur (BCS), Mexico through the CLA program here at CSU. Through the enriching experiences I had throughout BCS, I learned so much about myself and, in this, I believe I found clarity on what my future professional and personal aspirations are. I learned the importance of community and community-building through service-learning and how I can apply this throughout my future endeavors.
