Meet Matt Konle! Matt’s semester in Strasbourg helped him to develop a holistic worldview on how different cultures learn and strive in their environments. While in Europe, he took every opportunity to travel, see new places, and experience different cultures. Since returning to Wisconsin, he has deepened his passion for exploration by visiting national parks and cities across the US. Matt believes that traveling and seeing the world helps to open your mind to unique opportunities, learn about different communities, and grow personally and professionally. When asked about his study abroad experience, Matt said:
“I loved studying abroad! Studying abroad opened up many learning experiences and world views that I normally wouldn’t have been susceptible to. I formed new friendships and made so many memories that I will cherish forever. At first, I was a little nervous about moving to a new country for a whole semester, but now I would say that everyone should travel abroad! And taking a few classes is just an extra bonus.”
