Study Abroad, Break Perceived Notions

Study Abroad, Break Perceived Notions

Marcus Jansen (Horticulture) a native to Illinois always wanted to be actively involved in different clubs and organizations during his time at Iowa State University. One unique opportunity that interested Marcus was to participate in an international experience.

Marcus participated in several study abroad opportunities to Ireland and Ecuador that allowed him to be immersed in different cultures, visit popular landmarks and experience how different production systems operated around the world. Marcus’s study abroad experiences allowed him to gain a new outlook on different parts of the world as he realized that you don’t get to break perceived notions until you are there and experience the differences first-hand.
