    Why study abroad? Ask Michelle Obama

    Study Abroad Four-timer

     
    My name is Jack Burrus and I am a senior at the University of Miami in Florida. I have studied abroad four times in Tibet, Hong Kong, Edinburgh, and Oxford. Each trip abroad gave me new perspectives on the world and the variety of cultures within it. When I returned after my fourth study abroad experience, I began working at the Study Abroad office on the University of Miami's campus. I also began volunteering with a student organization called "Global Ambassadors." Global Ambassadors hosts events throughout the school year on different regions of the world in order help promote the integration of cultures, languages, and traditions at the University of Miami.
