“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.
