Student Experiences

Casey Molina

“Study abroad was something that always seemed financially out of reach for me, but because of the Global Education Scholarship I was able to study abroad for a whole semester. It changed my life and has opened me up to more opportunities to expand my education experiences to a global scale. It not only paved the way for my study abroad experience, but shaped my experience at Virginia Tech overall.”

– Casey Molina, multimedia journalism, studied abroad in Switzerland, Rwanda, and the Dominican Republic
