Natalie chose North Central College for “its strong and diverse study abroad program. I knew I wanted to study in France. Also, the ministry and service staff members were awesome.”
During her time at North Central, she enjoyed many opportunities to enrich her studies in French and global studies. Her first year, she traveled to Haiti. “That service trip reaffirmed my passion for serving others and studying languages, hearing people there speak French and Creole. And I made some of my best friends at North Central on that trip.”
Her junior year, Natalie studied abroad in Angers, France, at the Université Catholique de l'Ouest.
“It was one of the best experiences of my life. From living with a host family, to making international friends, to traveling across France and Europe, I was completely immersed in the French culture and languages.”
