As a sophomore at Finlandia University Julia Coon made a bold decision: She was going to study abroad in Tanzania as part of Finlandia’s Servant Leadership Program.
It was a decision she didn’t regret, and one that led her to an amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Study Abroad provides great experience
In this video Coon sat down and talked with Director of Marketing and Communications Michael H. Babcock about the experience. Some of the topics include the lifelong friends she made while there, the preparation that her and her classmates went through before leaving, what day-to-day life was like in Tanzania and provides advice for students who are considering joining this program in the upcoming year.
