What Past Students Say

Study Abroad was the reason I chose Penrose! Going to France was one of the greatest memories I think I will ever have, and I can’t help but smile when I think about it! Being able to experience a different culture was amazing! Paris was magical, Nice is beautiful and I will remember that trip forever.
