While Dylan Anthony Beaver (’15) of Polkville, N.C., traveled less than 30 minutes to attend Gardner-Webb University, his education included the opportunity to journey more than 4,000 miles to Spain, where he lived for three months. “My study-abroad experience in Spain was truly life changing,” Beaver reflected. “It was the first time I had been that far from home for that length of time. After a couple of weeks of getting used to hearing and speaking Spanish 24/7, I got settled into classes and meeting new people and the dialogue became much easier and routine. Being there allowed me to immerse myself in the language and culture while building some great relationships along the way.”
