Abroad101 Student of the Week winner #32 is Wes Lindenmuth. Wes is currently a junior at the University of Cincinnati. He is a communications, business, and information technology major who is looking to study abroad in Florianopolis, Brazil for the spring 2015 semester. He will be attending the Universade De Federal Santa Catarina, which is one of the top 5 universities in South America.
Wes is very excited about this opportunity because it will allow him to build international connections that are essential to his fields of study. While in Brazil, he will be specifically studying international economics and portuguese. Wes believes that understanding international business, as well as learning a new language, will be tremendously valuable to his academic development and professional versatility. And we couldn’t agree more! Check out Wes’ Fundraising Mission for his plane ticket to get him to Florianopolis here!
