"My freshman year, I took Japanese as my required language. I ended up going on the Summer Language Abroad (SLA) Program to Hokkaido... studying Japanese gave me this opportunity to come get an internship in a foreign city."

Globally Engaged Citizens
Notre Dame’s Globally Engaged Citizens program rewards the learning and experiences you are already engaging in — and will stand out on your resume and show employers and graduate schools that you’re prepared to be a global citizen.
Students in any college or school can earn the certificate by taking two classes and participating in cultural activities on and off campus. You may already be well on your way to meeting the requirements.
