Study Abroad Diplomats

When thinking about studying abroad, many sources of information are available about the journey upon which one is about to embark. One of those sources considered in making that decision is that of a peer: someone who has experienced the journey already.

Stetson Law's International Programs Office has enlisted the help of Stetson students who have participated in our study abroad programs. Below we introduce you to our Study Abroad Diplomats.

Please use the "Ask a Study Abroad Diplomat" link below to send your questions. They will respond accordingly via email to you.

Program attended: Australian Exchange

Cinzia is a 2L in Stetson's part-time program. In spring 2014, she was the first Stetson exchange student to attend Victoria University (Vic Uni) in Melbourne, Australia. For Cinzia, studying international law and other subjects at a foreign university provided a perspective on world events, and especially the U.S. role in those events, that she could never get in the U.S. For her, it was enlightening to view the U.S. without the 'rose-colored glasses' that we often view ourselves through. Sharing our Bill of Rights with a country whose constitution does not include those same rights, made her appreciate our U.S. Constitution even more.
