Kristen dreamed of traveling to Europe and studying how the agricultural systems differ from Indiana. She accomplished both by participating in the Study Abroad program to Ireland in the spring semester of 2009.
She says, "I advise everyone who has ever wanted to experience new cultures and new places to give study abroad a chance. I think my semester in Ireland was one of the most adventurous and thrilling experiences of my life. Not only did I have the opportunity to see amazing things, tombs from 3200 BC and monasteries built before Christopher Columbus came to America, but also the courses are great. I learned a myriad of facts about Irish culture, agriculture, and myself by studying abroad, and I would not change it for the world."
