students studying abroad

Technological University Dublin in Dublin, Ireland

"Attending DIT for a semester has changed me in so many aspects of my life. I now feel like I am able to thrive in any situation I am put into. I have a greater awareness of other cultures and a desire to learn more about them. Studying in Dublin was one of the best experiences of my life and if I could do it all over again, I would. The courses over there were enjoyable and the content that I was taught was exactly what I would have been learning here at Purdue. After studying abroad I feel like it should be required for every student to do it. Not only because it is such an enjoyable experience but also because of how much it changes you for the better. Studying abroad broadens your horizons and challenges you to get out of your comfort zone and try something you normally wouldn't do. I know while I was abroad I did countless things I wouldn't normally do while at Purdue and I find myself doing those things now that I am back at Purdue. I would highly recommend that anyone who has any interest in studying abroad should do it. You won't regret it as looking back on it I believe it was one of the best decisions I have made while attending Purdue."
