Personal Statement:

I travel extensively for work and pleasure. My wife and I have been to more than 60 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 am an advocate for study abroad and exchange programs. Your college years are the perfect time to study away and Salve Regina offers a variety of options around the world that range from yearlong and semester programs to short term and summer programs - even a one-week overseas service trip during the semester.
