The Do’s & Dont’s: Tips From an American Study Abroad Student

It seems like just yesterday, all of us Syracuse Abroad students were stepping off the plane and into London Heathrow Airport, marking our successful voyage to our place of study for the next 3 months. While it’s bittersweet to be wrapping up the program and heading back home, my CRS 400 class decided to make a series of videos highlighting some tips for next semester’s incoming students.

Below you will find a video produced by me that suggests 10 tips for American students studying abroad. Some of the ideas in this clip parallel specific topics we’ve learned in this class, which is why I’ve also included some external resources as well. You can find these below.
