Kotch Mmopi ’20 is immersing himself into a new culture through studying abroad

Kotch Mmopi ’20 is living, studying, and interning in London, England this semester through the College’s Global Engagement Office.

“I simply focused my efforts on ensuring that I had no expectations,” Mmopi said. “And instead I would be open to all sorts of different experiences and the opportunity to build relations with people who were different from those of the Lake Forest College community.”

Mmopi is just one of many Lake Forest College students studying abroad this semester. Other Foresters are studying in China, Costa Rica, Ecuador, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Northern Ireland, Scotland, South Korea, Spain, and United Arab Emirates.  

“At the beginning of the program, I made it an aim to fully immerse myself, and as I approach the end I am happy to say that this is something that I have been able accomplish as I reflect on my experiences at work, in the classroom and beyond, in my social activities.”
