What Our Students are Saying
“One thing I like most about my internship (at the NEXT lab) is the opportunity to learn. There is so much to do and to learn from working here, and also I like the goals that NEXT is wanting to achieve.”
“I am so thankful for the opportunity to participate in the Undergraduate Research Festival as a member of the ACU McNair Scholars Program. My project would not have been possible without the guidance and mentorship of Dr. Steven Moore, James Scudder, and the wonderful professors that encouraged me along the way. My time as a McNair Scholar has added to my already amazing experience as an ACU student and has helped me grow as a researcher.”
Studying abroad is indescribable and, without a doubt, will impact the rest of your life. You cross paths with people and places that you never would have otherwise, you taste food that will monopolize your brain and taste buds for years to come, and you learn lessons that shape you into a stronger, more prepared adult. Everything about study abroad is transformational, and it is something you will never understand until you partake in your very own experience.
