My time at James Cook University in Australia was an experience that will never be forgotten. While I was there, I made sure to try and speak with as many Australians as possible and join in activities/go on trips that would not be possible elsewhere. Although it was very difficult to keep up with my studies with so many distracting things to do (such as getting my scuba diving license, traveling to Sydney, sailing the Whitsundays etc.) I did my best. I believe that I represented Allegheny College very well while I was at JCU. I ran into a few Australians who would ask me where I went to college back in the states. When I said Allegheny, there response was normally along the lines of, "Oh ya, I've met people who have come here in the past from Allegheny. They are great people." I believe that I as well as the other girls I studied abroad with from Allegheny, kept up this image while in Australia.
