ENMU Student Studies in South Korea
by Desiree M. Cooper
"I have so many memories to take back with me to the U.S. Memories that will last a lifetime.” – Zac Self
While many of his classmates chose to visit European countries this summer, student Zac Self decided to journey to Seoul, South Korea, through Eastern New Mexico University’s study abroad program.
“I feel as though it is easy to travel to European countries; however, how often does one get the opportunity to travel to Asia?” asked the communication major with an emphasis in broadcast journalism.
The traveler, who “constantly travels around the city and sees new places as often as possible,” advises students interested in studying abroad to “do it! You only get one life, might as well go on adventures while you have the opportunity to do so.”
The Belen-native said the experience “has truly been a blessing, an adventure and one of the best opportunities I have ever been given. I have so many memories to take back with me to the U.S. Memories that will last a lifetime.”
