Why study abroad? Ask Michelle Obama
Reluctant to Study Abroad
As a college professor who teaches at a university where study abroad as part of the undergraduate experience is highly recommended but not mandatory, I encounter students who don't understand the importance of enriching their lives by studying in another country and turn down the opportunity. While I can offer all the right reasons for studying abroad, Mrs. Obama's urging will make a bigger impression on the students than will mine.
