Many students engage in international opportunities here at the college. In 2019, approximately 100 students engaged in a short-term, Study Abroad experience, and about 70 engaged in an entire semester abroad. And then we had 80-plus students do one of our unique Magellan Project, so an independent research opportunity somewhere awesome in the world. We have a range of opportunities to suit students in any major with any level of background, and we're fortunate also to have a lot of funding to help them afford those kinds of opportunities.
My semester abroad was in Seville, Spain. It was really nice, and I chose that because I wanted to increase my Spanish language skills. Through the different scholarships and things that the Study Abroad office has, I took advantage of that and used the money to travel around to different countries in the area. And I went to some places like Morocco, Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, France.
It's just an amazing opportunity. You can improve your language skills if you are interested in doing that, or you can just go somewhere that you're interested in maybe the culture. You make a ton of new friends from different countries and from our country who are also studying abroad. It's just an amazing experience that you really should take advantage of because you won't have that opportunity again.
