Ranked #3 on the Princeton Review’s Most Popular Study Abroad list, the Tufts Study Abroad program encourages students to leave campus junior year for a semester or two. Advertised as one of the best ways to learn a new language or immerse yourself in a foreign culture, studying abroad is also known as an easy semester away from U.S. drinking laws and other such nonsense. Venturing abroad also gives you street cred when you return home. Although it’s not as bad ass to say you spent a semester in Morocco while at Tufts, your friends and family from home will certainly be impressed. Likewise, it is also important to remember certain experiences from studying abroad to impress others and/or make them jealous.

Exhibit C) “Craziest thing I ate? Scorpions, man. Scorpions…”
