City, State: Pagosa Springs, CO
NSE Location: Stony Brook University, New York
Favorite thing about being on Exchange: My favorite part of NSE was definitely all the new places and people! There is so much diversity in New York and so many cool people to talk to and learn from! I had never been to the East Coast before, so the experience opened my eyes to a whole new way of life! Every day was an adventure!
Why other students should go on exchange: National Student Exchange provides an incredible opportunity to travel and explore the country! I was able to go to school on Long Island for a semester for the same cost as going to Western! NSE allows you to step out of your comfort zone and experience a new way of life! Traveling provides so many new and exciting opportunities! The school you exchange to more often than not will offer a different variety of classes and activities. I joined the equestrian team in New York and got to ride and show horses all semester! You can learn so much through these new experiences! National Student Exchange is an opportunity you can't turn down!
