By Caitlin Burns | October 7, 2019

From weeklong cultural immersion to yearlong study abroad opportunities, Arcadia has it all– and was nationally recognized for it. On Sept. 20, PBS39 featured Arcadia after U.S. News & World Report ranked the University second in the nation for study abroad.

The segment including interviews with Lorna Stern, vice president and executive director of The College of Global Studies; Scott Terry, director of the Office of Study Away; alumni Ashley Selig ’19; and students Sam Wragg ’20, Nisha Prajapati ’20, and Heidi Specht ’20

“Next year, I’m applying for the Fulbright English teaching scholarship in Brazil, and then after that, probably go back to grad school and focus on urban education policy,” said Specht, and International Studies and Spanish major, in her interview. “Studying abroad has just kind of opened my eyes and given me experience in different situations, different cultures, which is really important.”
