Why should you participate in a global experience?

Studying abroad has many benefits including the ability to travel, learn a new language and enhance resumes and professional opportunities. But the benefits extend beyond the obvious. Students who explore life outside of the country say time and again that the experience changed their lives; they grew personally and by learning more about other cultures, came to better appreciate their own.
