Bailee Atencio

"As I approached the end of my time in community college, I was certain that I wanted to continue my studies, but I was faced with a difficult decision to make of which university and at what cost. Before I was offered the opportunity to study in France, I had been accepted to the programs of my choice at each of the American universities I’d applied to the previous fall — making it all the more difficult to choose. My top choice was one of the best engineering schools in the country in a beautiful location, but I hadn’t been offered a scholarship. Rather fortunately, the unique opportunity to study abroad in France presented itself just in time and allowed me to fulfill all of my aspirations for higher education: affordable, internationally-focused, and culturally enriching.”

"Studying in France has been a very different and enriching experience compared to other education opportunities I’ve had. The program has taught me how to effectively communicate in a foreign language, to learn under a different education system, and to completely integrate and adapt to France. I have worked with engineering companies that have helped me expand my professional interests and my perspective on the international professional world."  - Diego 2018
