Unpacked: A Study Abroad Guide for Students Like Me

No matter what your major, the world isn’t getting any less global. Every industry in the U.S. is affected by globalization, and study abroad is a way to get ahead in the marketplace. But we know it’s not as easy as it sounds. We all have obligations, concerns, time constraints, jobs, responsibilities, hesitations. So that’s why we’re here. 

Unpacked is an IFSA-Butler resource that is driven by our students. Unpacked is a place to sort through the stuff you need to know from what others are telling you (or not telling you) straight from the source: each other. You don’t have to take it from IFSA-Butler; you can take it from the stories of your fellow students. International study won’t just change your life—that’s too simplistic. It will change your opportunities, your trajectory, your family, your tastes, your resume, and, in turn, it will allow you to change the world around you.

We are an organization built on navigating cultures and shaping global citizens, and we recognize and value the unique cultural perspectives of all our students. We believe in a collaborative community; our students, our staff, our IFSA-Butler family around the world learn from one another every day. And Unpacked is a vessel for what we’ve learned, how we’ve navigated and what we want to tell others still considering the journey of study abroad.
