How did you choose your area of study?
I chose to study French because I love Paris and wanted to participate in Lake Forest College’s study abroad program in Paris. Although I do not currently use French in my job, my French degree from Lake Forest College allowed me to spend a semester studying law in Paris while in law school.
I believe any time spent abroad is incredibly important because it gives you a new frame of reference, which makes you more creative and gives you the ability to think outside of the box - skills valuable for any profession.
