Why Students Participate

Our society has become both restless and mobile. Students are not content to stay in one place and grow roots. In addition, many campuses encourage or require off-campus study experiences. NSE is a significant opportunity in the multitude of options available for new living/learning experiences. Some of the reasons students choose NSE are to:
  • broaden personal and educational perspectives
  • explore new areas
  • learn from different professors
  • experience personal growth
  • explore new areas of study
  • take courses not available on their home campuses
  • acquire life skills
  • explore career options
  • investigate graduate schools
  • look for future employment
  • become more independent and resourceful
  • experience life from a different point of view
"If a parent were to ask us if it was a good idea to send Antonia to study away, we would say it was the best decision we could have made with our daughter. She returned home armed with a greater appreciation for the world around her, the confidence to meet new people, and the courage to continue to seek out new and exciting places to visit. We certainly thank NSE for their part in making this experience possible."
