The South End: Study abroad programs provide unique opportunities for students

Many college students dream of traveling and living abroad. Wayne State University student Tori Griffin is one of those who aspires to see the world — and she is living the dream.

Griffin, a marketing and communications double major, is no stranger to travel for the sake of education. She studied abroad three times through WSU.

Last summer, Griffin completed the two week Polish cultural trip and studied a semester in South Korea. This past winter, she spent a semester in Manchester, England.
