The role(s) you have fulfilled in your respective communities, even within your own family, are no doubt important to you and have gifted you with many skills. Now that you are a Davidson College student, we encourage you to enhance and build on those skills through study abroad. 

Whether you are nervous, anxious, excited–or a combination of the three–about being the first member of your family to attend college, being in an unfamiliar environment both poses additional challenges, and also brings about new opportunities. It is, therefore, important to learn how to identify, navigate, and negotiate resources that increase the likelihood of your academic and personal success. There are numerous departments here that can assist you, and the office of education abroad is one of them.  

We invite you to learn more about what study abroad is and participate; this may arguably make you even more competitive for any number of opportunities after graduation.
