"I studied abroad at Sussex for one semester (term) of my junior year at the University of Vermont.

I was overwhelmed by the variety of extracurricular opportunities available to exchange students—societies, events, sports activities, trips around the UK, and more. I took advantage of trips run by the University to London and Oxford, explored Brighton’s vibrant music and arts scene, and even travelled to Europe on a weekend away with my new-found friends.

My exchange experience inspired new interests and opportunities and I am more adaptable and independent as a result."
