The area could be difficult to navigate, or, worst-case scenario, you won connect with your international classmates. Spending a semester abroad as a freshman will increase your cultural competency, build your character, and give you a better sense of the world around you.

This is not only a resume-builder but allows you the opportunity to study abroad a second (or third time in my case) while still completing an undergraduate degree. You might even become an international studies major!
