This paper is a general guide for students who wish to study abroad. The author is a study abroad alumnus, having completed an internship program in Florence, Italy. The paper is divided up into several sections. These include interviews from faculty who have led study abroad trips, advice from former students, as well as interpersonal communication advice on how to accustom to different cultures when traveling. The advice is broken up in this paper by regions of the world. A section of this paper is devoted to advice for American students on how to fit in while traveling, and the etiquette that is expected while visiting a foreign country. Some research is presented that shows that typically, American students drink more while abroad than they do in the United States and this paper goes into detail on why that is the case.
