If you're adventurous and interested in traveling and meeting new people, a semester abroad is the best and easiest way to do. My exchange to Karlstad, Sweden was amazing. I met and lived with the coolest, most inspiring people where we had the opportunity to tour all around Sweden as well as a lot of Europe. I ate dinner with my friends every night, and made memories that will never be replicable. Also, being thrown into a new culture where the language is different is so exciting, and I loved trying to learn the language. I still am, and I have full intentions to return soon. I now have friends from all over the world which I would consider as my bests. My only regret is staying only one semester.
