“The World is a Book and Those who do not Travel Read only one Page”

Argentina is a country that has a lot to offer with many growing business opportunities. Studying abroad offers experience to future employers that is beyond comparison to others. It prepares you in many ways that an internship or simply taking a class cannot.

My Argentina

During my trip to Argentina I saw and did some wonderful things that will forever change my perception on not only myself but how I view the world around me. This trip was very business based which makes since because it is a business class. I as a psychology major went into it looking to get out more than just management experiences. I was not let down; this trip

The Bueno and Diferente of Buenos Aires, Argentina

Despite the obstacles faced, especially and beginning with the intention to fly out for Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, on the first and only snow fall in Chattanooga of the season, I have returned home beyond content with my time in South America, and only wish I could stay longer for many reasons, in addition to the fact that it is their summer! The short-term trips are a

I was blessed with the opportunity to study abroad in Buenos Aires, Argentina for 10 days in December, 20177 and it was not nearly a long enough trip! I was able to travel with 21 of my fellow classmates and 2 professors to this beautiful city and we definitely made the most of it. Our group focused on building an appreciation for how complex it is to operate a

Experience of a Lifetime: Argentina 2017

During the Fall 2017 semester I was given the opportunity to travel abroad to Argentina. This trip was designed to help us expand our knowledge into international business and culture. I can say without a doubt that this trip exceeded our expectations. I was able to arrive in Argentina a few days early to gain the most. After we arrived, we spent a day in Uruguay, seeing the natural

Frolicking Among the Bahamian Plants

Over Spring Break, I went to San Salvador, Bahamas with my Tropical Island Ecology and Geology course. As an accounting major, I didn’t expect to enjoy learning about the ecology of San Salvador, but I did. In fact, I learned a lot more than I expected to. More specifically, I learned how to identify plants and other living organisms, all while staying next to a beautiful beach. While we

Taking Tropical Geology and Ecology in San Salvador, Bahamas

Most of us strive to go around the world to see and experience new places. Thanks to UTC Center for Global Education, who provided a scholarship, I was able to go to San Salvador Bahamas with my class to do research. First let me tell about the beautiful small island San Salvador located in the Bahamas. Like most Caribbean islands, the island contains white sandy beaches with a combination

Study Abroad Experience in San Salvador, Bahamas

The study abroad opportunity I was provided during spring break by the Honors College and the Center for Global Education at UTC was the most memorable, impactful travel experience I have ever had.

Our focus was to update a trail guide published two decades ago which detailed a part of the interior bush of the

A Magyar Spring Break

Traveling is the best form of education. I have always believed and lived by this statement. Over spring break (2018), I took a faculty led study abroad trip to Hungary and Slovakia. Our class focused on 20th century minorities in Hungary and Slovakia today. We were led by Dr. John Swanson who organized the trip and led us on it. We studied Jewish, German, and Romanian minorities living in

Tropical Ecology in the Bahamas

Going abroad definitely opened my eyes to a new side of the world. The culture here was so vastly different compared to the way the United States operates in ways such as their daily lives and even the things they valued and revolved around. I gained a new perspective on the world around me which is the most important thing I brought back from the entire trip. Aside from
