Amanda K. Slocum from Rochester, New York – “One of the most rewarding experiences for me, at Bates, was spending my junior year abroad. I spent the first semester in London and the second semester in Australia. And I guess the thing I learned while I was in Australia, especially being in a big school, was to really appreciate the familiarity, the smiling faces you see at a small school: the availability of the professors, their doors always open, them responding to your e-mails even if it’s at midnight.”
