We sat down with electrical and computer engineering student, Adam Curtis to talk about his study abroad experiences. Check out what he had to say!
During my freshman year, I was a part of the Global Living Learning Center when I lived in Mosher Hall. Since it emphasized cultural inclusion they encouraged us to study abroad in San Miguel de Allende for the upcoming spring break. Before the trip I was a little hesitant to go since I did not know the people I was going with, nor had I been to Mexico, but I decided to follow my gut. Little did I know that this trip would be a memory I’d cherish for a lifetime.
A study abroad during the week of spring break?? What? Is that even possible? The answer is yes! This past spring break, I had the opportunity to go on a study abroad to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico, through Texas A&M’s global engineering program. The class, global engineering awareness, did not directly count towards my degree plan, but that is ok! It was a truly memorable, enriching, unique experience.
