Personal Statement:

I travel extensively for work and pleasure. My wife and I have been to more than four dozen countries on five continents, and 49 of the 50 U.S. states. (Can you guess which one I'm missing?)

It's no surprise that I'm an advocate for study abroad and exchange programs. Your college years are the perfect time to study away and Salve offers a variety of options in over 40 different countries. We have yearlong and semester programs, short term and summer programs, even a one-week overseas service trip during winter break. Explore our opportunities.
