NUin Theatre students return from their time abroad more intellectually curious, ambitious, reflective, and independent. Here’s what Rosa Procaccino ’18 had to say about her NUin experience:
“I was an NUin student, and we have many others in the theatre department. I had an amazing time even though it was something I hadn’t originally imagined for myself. Here are two questions that are often asked about the program:
Was it difficult or exciting to study internationally?
Well, both. I guess all new places can be bit scary at first, but the opportunity to experience a different culture was also inspiring and transformative. NUin helped me to grow past my comfort zone in so many ways, and Northeastern provided incredible support systems for me. I always felt safe, supported, and connected to a community.
Was it hard to arrive on campus in January?
Not at all. It might be for some majors, but theatre people are different. Everyone is very welcoming, and they reach out to the NUin students right away to make sure they feel at home. Theatre people are like one big family.
I loved being a theatre major at NU. It’s really a place where you can choose your own adventure. And your dramatic adventure may begin somewhere around the globe.”
Time spent traveling the world can be thrilling, but it’s not right for everyone. Before making your decision, remember to gather the information you need by visiting our campus, speaking with some NUin Theatre alums or faculty and evaluating your own feelings about studying abroad.
