Two business students prepare to study abroad: Spring 2012

Nathan Sturos will be traveling south to study spanish in Costa Rica.

Nathan Sturos and Nicholas Vezzetti continue their preparations for a study abroad experience beginning after the New Year.

Nathan will be studying and learning in Costa Rica at the University National.  Nathan will be getting immersion training in the Spanish language.

From Nathan:

I am looking forward to a lot of things when I go to Costa Rica in January:
I am excited to learn the Spanish language and immerse myself in a culture inherently different than my own. I am looking forward to meeting knew people and getting an education experience that I could not get anywhere in the United States. I think this experience will be extremely beneficial, not only in my pursuit of a career, but also in my life in general. I can’t wait to experience the adventure that this tropical climate has to offer. It should be a nice change from winter storms in the U.P.

Nick will attend Shanghai University in China.  He will study business and general education courses while living in one of the fastest growing, modern cities in the world.
