Julio Castro Study Abroad

“I always tell students that studying abroad was the most defining thing of my college experience” — Julio Castro 

I love when I have study abroad advisors on the show because they do a good job of getting students to take the plunge and study abroad.

This episode is no different.

Julio did a great job of recollecting his time of Spain and Germany, respectively. He also reminisced about transitioning into his own job while he was still studying abroad, which is a very real concern for lots of students who study abroad towards the end of their college careers.
