I am writing to invite you to consider the National Student Exchange (NSE). NSE gives you an opportunity to experience a different area with its unique cultural and academic opportunities. Since NSE’s beginning in 1968, more than 96,000 students have had the opportunity to participate in NSE, giving them the opportunity to:
· broaden their personal and educational perspectives
· experience new cultures
· explore new areas of study
· learn from different professors
· access new courses
· experience personal growth
· meet new people
· make new friends
· live in a different area
· investigate graduate schools
· seek future employment
Many returning UW students describe NSE as a life-changing experience which has made them more independent, self-confident and resourceful; expanded their risk-taking capabilities; and helped them better define their academic and career objectives.
