Bailey Burkholder, Ohio State sophomore, marketing major, traveled to Italy and Ireland with the Fisher College of Business Freshman Global Lab during the 2013 May session.
"I chose to do a short May-mester study abroad to Italy and Ireland so I could get an experience traveling without the fear of being away from my family for too long. Also, I decided to go with the Freshman Global Lab through Fisher so I could have the opportunity to meet other business students in my grade and start building connections within my college. In addition, I chose the trip because I got credit for the International Business course that all business students have to take.
My favorite memory on my Freshman Global Lab was traveling around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. It was so beautiful and made for some great picture taking! Also, I met a local who had a baby lamb that he let me hold!
Traveling abroad was one of the best decisions I’ve made at Ohio State. I was exposed to other cultures not just in the business world, but in everyday life. I learned so much and some of my best friends to this day I met on the trip. Truly an experience I will never forget.”
