The Career Center has recently released the Cal Poly Pomona Senior Exit Survey for the 2014-2015 academic year. One of the retrospective questions asked students about their participation in various campus activities and the relative impact the participation had on their college experience. The data shows that students self-reported studying abroad as being the most impactful! The survey states the following:

We see that a large majority (89%) of students that studied abroad found the experience to have a significant impact. Even though not many students (only 5.3%) have ventured outside the country in some sort of exchange program. This suggests that students who have the opportunity to study abroad should seize the day – those that have, did not regret it.
