Recently, chemical and environmental engineering student Zach Westman traveled to Europe as part of an Advanced Honors Trip, and spoke about his experiences in the first UA Travel Abroad Student Spotlight.
"I've never traveled abroad before, so the opportunity to do so while exploring STEM topics was really appealing to me," said Westman, who visited both London and Leiden, the Netherlands, during his travels.
Westman said the program gave him a global perspective on his life goals, exposing him to worldwide issues to which he could apply his UA education.
As of Jan. 21, Westman has taken over the UA Study Abroad Instagram page, and his photos and those of other study abroad students are available there.
The next UA Study Abroad program will run in summer 2019.
