Fred Gladis, Fall 2017 Fred Gladis
Program: The American University of Rome (AUR)
Term Abroad: Fall 2017
Major: Business Administration

My semester abroad in Rome was the greatest semester of my life, not to mention the best four months of my life. Studying in another country cannot be compared to anything else at SJU and I've made lasting memories and even more life long friendships. The ability to travel every weekend, experience new cultures, languages, and people is amazing. The world now seems smaller to me. Do not pass up this opportunity!

Hola! I'm a junior with a Communications/Spanish double major and a Leadership Ethics and Organizational Sustainability minor. I'm from New London, PA, but my heart is also at Hawk Hill and the University of Granada. Contact me at, and say hi if you see me on campus!

Program: DIS in Copenhagen
Term Abroad: Fall 2017
Majors: Communications and Film

Studying abroad in Copenhagen was the best decision I've made during my time at SJU. I'm so glad I took advantage of this wonderful opportunity to see the other side of the world. For me, Copenhagen is like a second home and I can't wait to get back soon!
