A ‘different world’ in Australia

Jason Choi ’17

Philosophy major

Studied philosophy and sociology, at the University of Wollongong, in Australia

“I met great friends here—some of whom are now friends for life. City life in Sydney is really different from my New York City life. People are laid-back and really welcoming. In Melbourne, I fell in love with the music, the food and the art, and I got my first real exposure to nature when I took a road trip down the coast. Studying abroad has impacted me in ways I don’t think I’ll ever be able to clearly articulate 100 percent. I was so affected by the experience that I’ve applied for jobs in Australia and have considered going to graduate school there. It’s a whole different world.”
