My Travel Story

by: Robert Preller Start Date: Jun 15, 2016 - End Date: Nov 11, 2016
my name is Robert; I am currently a senior at Salisbury University's Perdue School of Business (Yes, the chicken company) in Salisbury, Maryland. I am an Information Systems major with an Accounting and Finance minor. I am raising money to help finance my fixed and variable costs of studying abroad in Melbourne, during the spring of 2017. I have wanted to study abroad in Australia ever since my dad's friend, Matt talked to me about his trips to Australia; it is because of him that I am so anxious to go and experience a new culture. 

While studying abroad in Melbourne I plan to leave my American stereotype(s) behind and immerse myself in a new experience with my fellow study abroad students. The team at CIS abroad has helped me match up with an AACSB accredited business school at La Trobe University so that I can get the most out of my time while studying in Melbourne. Additionally, While in Australia I intend to leave the states behind; meet new people, experience different foods, and interact with some interesting critters! Also, I am going to partake in the volunteer activities that are offered by the CIS abroad staff, so that I can give back to Melbourne, for all that it has, and will do for me. Academically, I will be taking classes that are directly related to my major and will transfer over to the states towards my degree. 

Thanks for your time and any donations are greatly appreciated

Donations of $100 or more will be eligible for a handwritten card (or email if preferred) from me to the donor every month over my time overseas.
