“Study abroad equals opportunity. Whether it's the opportunity to experience a new culture, to better discover who you are and who you want to be, or to travel the world and see what it has to offer, studying abroad can offer you this and so much more. You can get as little or as much out of it as you want to - it's up to you.”

“I needed a change and I needed to be inspired again. I played with the idea of going abroad for a semester and the rest was history. I chose Sevilla because of how established Texas Tech's program is and the convenience of getting all of my Spanish credits done in one semester.”
