Study Abroad

The University of New Mexico understands the need to promote awareness of multicultural issues in today’s global, interdependent society, and believes that studying in another country is an important way of fostering this awareness. Spending time overseas helps students learn about new countries and different cultures, and often students return to New Mexico with a new level of knowledge and new ways of looking at the world.

Each year the UNM Study Abroad department sends over 700 students to every part of the globe. Students are able to spend anywhere from a few weeks to an entire school year learning about new cultures and sharing their lives with a new group of people. Here, some of UNM’s Study Abroad students talk about their experiences overseas, and why spending time in another country is important to a student’s growth. Find out more about UNM’s Study Abroad program at their web site.

Hey everyone! Hope you are all doing well and staying cool this summer! So recently, I went to two different attractions I have been wanting to go to since I got here. I went to see a kabuki play as well as an indoor amusement park called Joypolis. The kabuki play was definitely a culture […]

The Land of Enchantment

When I came back from my first study abroad experience in high school, my mom bought me a book, Burn-Up or Splash Down by Marion Knell, which I only read some of, but that deals with the difficulties that many people have when returning home after being overseas or away from home for a long […]

Packin’ It All Up

Packing up all your belongings into one suitcase and one backpack isn’t the easiest task ever, but it is my final task here in Madrid. Although it is true that I came to Spain with the same amount of space in my bags, due to the Law of Accumulation of Random Sh*t, I think that […]

Bratislava & Vienna

If you ask me where Bratislava is, I can tell you it is in Slovakia, but if you ask me why I decided to travel to Bratislava, I would have to tell the truth and say: “No real reason. The flights were cheap.” Probably a month ago I was trying to plan some of the […]
