Most Memorable Moment

The people I’ve met here are great. I’ve learned so much from them and I feel like I’ve made lifetime friends. Almost every conversation is shared over food and drinks, and because of that, I feel really connected to the culture here (food smells will always remind me of Korea).

First Generation Students Abroad

First generation students are the first in their family to go to college, which also means they are likely to be the first in their family to study abroad. This can lead to special concerns for the family and friends supporting you. To help alleviate some of this stress, talk to the Study Abroad Advisors at IAP and do your own personal research. Study Abroad Advisors can answer specific questions about programs and they can give you detailed advice on what you may experience while abroad. Be sure to check out the study abroad blogs written by your fellow UW Madison students to get first hand advice from a student perspective!
