Study Abroad Mentors (aka SAMs) are Augusta University students who have been on a study abroad or study away program. These study abroad alumni were so impacted by their experience that they want to volunteer their time to promote the incredible effects that a study abroad program can have on a student’s life.

- Costa Rica: First Year Experience (Spring 2018)
- Greece (Summer 2018)

I'm Lexy Katic a Junior with no direction other then I like to travel. So, before my first semester started freshman year, I signed up for the first year experience trip to Costa Rica and the summer trip to Greece. Both trips were really beneficial in knocking out some of my core classes.  Each trip allowed for me to see first hand the things we learn in class. Seeing these things one first hand rather then second is something that will remain in my memory for years to come. My favorite part of both trips was the fact that I left with a just a random group of people and returned with not only life long friends but a family. The people I meet on these trips have shaped me into the person I will become. Costa Rica taught the importance of a helping  your fellow man. Greece taught me to be independent, strong and to keep moving forward. I can't wait to see what kinds of adventures I will go on in my remaining 2 years. Let's travel Jags!
