Many American Presidents were Rhodes Scholars. Is this a coincidence? How about the United World Colleges? There have been wealthy and benevolent people in the past who set up schools and programs because they wanted young people to see other cultures, meet other people and develop a united view of humanity. I was an international student. It wasn’t that big of a deal, going from Halifax, Canada to Gainesville, Florida but I did live in the International Student House on University Avenue near NW 4TH St. with a hundred guys from all over the world where I learned that we’re all the same. Countries are just artificial borders. It was a hassle though to do all that paperwork then have to buy medical insurance on top of it. I say if you got the means and the guts, go for it. The Council On International Educational Exchange (CIEE) offers many travel programs, work exchange programs and discount tour packages to students worldwide. They also offer educational tours abroad for groups of adults.

What originally started out as a few tips and suggestions for friends traveling abroad, Semester Abroad: A College Students Guide to Europe soon began to take shape. Within two years of returning from Europe, the 21 year old author had completed writing her book. Semester Abroad is not a list of where to stay and what to eat --there are plenty of those on the bookstore shelves written by adults for adults and families. It is more of an overview of traveling through Europe as a young adult. The opening chapters discuss important travel information like what to pack, documents needed and how to make the trip as smooth as possible. Most major countries in Europe are covered in their own chapter in this niche travel guide for the student/backpacking traveler. The country chapters discuss the main places of interest, the easiest way to tour each city as well as a historical overview. Reid believes it is important to have a basic understanding of the culture and history to best enjoy what each town and country has to offer. Along with the typical travel do's and don'ts, is important information such as the major holidays, tipping information and the American Embassy phone number. The book is designed for travelers of all budgets and interests. Semester Abroad is set to be an all-encompassing travel guide for the quick-paced world of study abroad students and backpackers from the perspective of a young college student.

More than 40 years ago, recognizing that higher education would have to take responsibility for educating Americans about other world cultures and societies, Congress passed the National Defense Education Act (later known as the Higher Education Act). Title VI of this act has provided extensive support for foreign languages and area studies development in the nation's universities and colleges. As a result, millions of Americans have been able to acquire knowledge about other parts of the world. Today, there are new issues, demands, and perspectives. Americans are more likely than ever to encounter different cultures, business practices, histories, ideologies, and ways of life. In addition, the United States is increasingly called upon to intervene or mediate in regional and local crises far beyond its borders. U.S. educational institutions must continue to help citizens to have informed opinions about complex international problems. Changing Perspectives on International Education is designed to be used by administrators and planners in U.S. education. It covers the field of international studies as it has developed in the United States, from its beginnings and accomplishments under Title VI to the current paradigmatic shifts taking place in research, teaching, and outreach. A major section is devoted to internationalizing the curriculum of K-12 schools. It concludes with a look at future trends and how they may affect international scholarship and training in the new century. It also provides an extensive bibliography of international resources.

Millions of students seek short- and long-term study abroad options every year, and this trend is a key illustration of the internationalization of higher education. Because a global perspective has become mandatory in the largely globalized workforce, many institutions look to study abroad programs to prepare their students. This outbound mobility has the potential to contribute to greater understanding between cultures, countries, and individuals. The Handbook of Research on Study Abroad Programs and Outbound Mobility offers a comprehensive look into motivations for and opportunities through all forms of outbound mobility programs. By providing empirically-based research, this publication establishes the benefits, difficulties, and rewards of building a framework to support international students and programs. It is an invaluable resource for academics, students, policy makers, course developers, counselors, and cross-cultural student advisors.
