Are you nervous? Do you wish you weren't going? These questions surfaced from friends and family soon before departure.

ODU encourages all students to consider studying abroad for a summer, semester, or full year as part of their academic experience. Study abroad can enhance any major by challenging students to adapt to a new academic system and to infuse their studies with a global perspective. In addition, the culture and language learning opportunities are unparalleled.
