Living in Japan

What It Was Like to Live in Japan with UW-Stout's Andria Morse

Andria Morse: Education Abroad Coordinator at UW-Stout

"I explain to students that this is an investment in your future - you are having to navigate all these different things which is going to build confidence, flexibility, adaptability, and networking" — Andria Morse

Andria Morse was so much fun to talk to and learn from in this interview. She currently serves as the Interim Assistant Director of international education at UW-Stout, a comprehensive, polytechnic university about an hour east of Minneapolis.

If you're thinking about Spain, or specifically Seville - you should tune in for sure. Japan? She's been there, too.

The takeaway...

Andria tells great stories, gives great advice, and approaches the entire study abroad process with a 'no regret' mentality.

"You're never lost, you're just in a place you've never been before" — Andria's Mom
