#StudyAbroadBecause the world is your classroom

Hi, I’m Ally Buzzanga, a 25 year old postgraduate who’s passionate about cultural shock, urban environments, and fish & chips. I spent the fall of 2012 studying abroad in London and decided then that living and traveling abroad was something that I was passionate about. Study abroad programs are getting more and more popular in the US and that’s great. I’d love to see American culture fully embrace the “gap year” and “gone travelling” attitude that my foreign friends so casually mentioned.

“I haven’t been everywhere…but it’s on my list” (Susan Sontag). As a traveler, in some way shape or form, this thought may have popped into your brain – it’s certainly bounced around in mine. As a former social studies teacher, a conversation based around where I (and my students) have been and want to go in the world could arise at any time. Studying Ancient China, they may ask if I’ve stood on the Great Wall. When researching monotheistic religions, they may ask if I’ve seen Jerusalem’s sacred sites.
