What are other students saying about study abroad?
“Munich, Germany study abroad was unlike anything I have ever experienced. Getting to tour and ask questions at businesses in Germany helped me to understand more about what I want to do after college. It opened my eyes to opportunities not only outside of the US, but other things I could look at within my home country and state. Using knowledge from class to see how it works in a real workplace made me appreciate my major so much more. Making friends, sightseeing, and exploring the culture of Germany will forever be something I cherish. I am so thankful I chose to Study Abroad in Munich, Germany with Ole Miss!” ~Munich 2023
