Corinne Kinney in Grenada, Spain

“I’ve never had a student come back saying they regret studying abroad, but I have met with multiple students saying that they regret not studying abroad.”Corinne Kenny

Currently a graduate assistant at UW – Lacrosse, Corinne studied abroad in Granada, Spain; one of the many hidden, beautiful cities in Europe that you’ve never heard of, and she absolutely loved it.

How much ❤️ you ask?

After she returned from her trip and graduated, she actually returned to Spain to work in Madrid for 11 months. This is something I regret not doing myself…It’s the story everyone yearns for, but you rarely see play out. But in Corinne’s, case we actually get to listen to what transpired.

The first time around, Corinne studied abroad through a program called Sol Education Abroad, which focuses on Spanish language immersion. So if you’re serious about learning Spanish, I’d recommend checking them out.

If you’re reading this, I’m imploring you to listen to this one in its entirety as it may very well change the trajectory of your career, and ultimately your life.
