TCOM strongly encourages you to take advantage of the university's Study Abroad program.  There are several options to choose from.  These programs can change your life and give you a different view of the world.  Go to England, Germany, Australia, Costa Rica, Italy, or any number of places around the world.  Get out there.  If you truly want to communicate to an audience, spend some time outside the United States and learn how to see things from a different perspective.
