Six reasons you need to travel before you graduate!
This doesn’t just end in your college-town! By getting an International Student ID, you will get the “student” price everywhere you go! It pays for itself many times over, and it make seeing the sights super affordable! Some cities even have student discounts on their “city passes,” which means that this card can get you cheaper public transportation tickets as well!
If you’re a student, you should always book your flights with STA Travel! Check out this post to learn ALL ABOUT how to do it!
It Adds to Your Education
When you travel, no matter where you are in the world, you are guaranteed to learn things you never could have in a classroom. You might pick up new languages, cultures, worldviews, and connections. College is supposed to be about making you ready for the world, but traveling will expose you to a world you have never seen, and allow you to learn how to live in it!
No Job Responsibilities
Once you graduate, you will have a job (hopefully). Because of this, if you want to travel, you will have to do it during the tourist-high-seasons and only for one week at a time (two if you’re lucky). As a student, semesters are only 16 weeks long, and you have the rest of the year to see the world, with no one questioning you.
You Might Find What You Want To Do With Your Life
Traveling the world exposes you to things you didn’t know existed. You will find out about new industries and interests! If you wait to discover these things after you’ve already graduated and settled down, it will be a lot harder to uproot and go somewhere new.
Home Is Still Undefined
Speaking of uprooting, when you are a student the idea of “home” is completely free and open for your own interpretation. Once you graduate, find a job, maybe buy a home, it is a lot harder to travel for extended periods of time because you have a home to take care of/that is calling you back. As a student you can FIND your HOME ABROAD!
