Piece of advice for studying abroad: Do it. It seems like a difficult thing to do but it is very simple with the help of the OIE and others. No one regrets studying abroad, the experience, knowledge, and, simply put, fun is too valuable. Get started by speaking to your professors, they will help get the ball rolling and its all down hill from there.
