I had an extraordinary experience completing this once in a lifetime opportunity, a 7-day hiking expedition. Even with its ups and downs, changing of plans, and unexpected weather, I wouldn’t change anything. Of course, I wouldn’t have been able to do it without the help I received from the University when it came to funding the excursion and would like to thank them for that. I would recommend applying for the Go Abroad Fund to all.
