The Towson University Study Abroad Office encourages parents, friends and family to take an active role in supporting their student's interest in study abroad. Your encouragement and support can make all the difference in the success of their study abroad experience.
As your student navigates the study abroad program selection process and prepares for their time overseas, you may have a number of questions of your own. We have compiled a list of responses to the most commonly asked questions from family and friends and we hope you will find it useful.
"My son, Kevin studied in Florence, Italy. He absolutely loved it! He learned so much and was able to experience (and photograph) so many special places and people - it was positively life-changing for him. As a parent, I quickly went from worrying about whether he would be homesick to wondering if he would ever want to come home!"
