Seeing the world now... Reporting by: Laura Hess ’11 Photo: Scott Sloat ’10 “I studied in Orizaba and Puebla, Mexico, primarily because I wanted to improve my Spanish. Life in Mexico was a lot different than life in the U.S. There are many things in the world that you can’t truly appreciate unless you put down the textbook and see them for yourself.”—Scott Sloat ’10, “I studied in Leeds, U.K. last year. I think what I am most proud of about myself is that I was able to live abroad for a year. At first, I was not sure I wanted to board the plane to go over; however, by the end of the year, I had traveled throughout Europe by myself.”—Kristine Karkoska ’10, biology, mathematics and history Photo: Kristine Kardoska ’10 international politics and conflict resolution Juniata offers students the opportunity to incorporate study abroad experiences into any academic program of study.

I chose to study in the U.S. because, on top of polishing my English skills, I wanted to encounter and embrace a culture which I am unfamiliar with. My cousin studies in Kyoto, Japan, and she took me sightseeing. This Inari Shrine had myriads of these gates, creating red tunnels. It was beautiful.”—Yoko Tsutani ’10, biology Photo: Yoko Tsutani ’10 Photo: Erin Satterthwaite ’10 “I studied in the Galapagos Islands in Ecuador. The ocean has always been my passion. My favorite part of studying abroad was going for my daily swim and having sea lions come play with me, turtles majestically swimming in front of me, and eagle rays gliding beneath me.”—Erin Satterthwaite ’10, biology Study Abroad Locations
