Stories from Abroad

Highlight of Our Study Abroad Students

Sydney in Florence

Sydney Grunsby, a senior in Business Studies, studied abroad with CISAbroad Semester in Florence in Fall 2021. 

Sydney published a blog on CISAbroad sharing 5 Tips she learned during the experience. 

"Looking back on my experience has only made me realize just how much I have changed as a person in only a few short months. Studying abroad changes you as a person. It changed me. The first few weeks can be rather intense. You are surrounded by new people, in a new place, with a foreign language. The transition is not the easiest. Here is my advice for studying abroad for a semester in Florence! "

Global Experience, Local Impact! 



The Summer 2020 issue of Stockton Now highlights the stories of four Stockton students who studied abroad in Australia, Czech Republic, Dominican Republic, France, and Guatemala. They shared their unique, meaningful, and life-changing experience with fellow ospreys. The story is written by Samantha Whitehurst '13.
