In high school, Kaleb Baber wouldn’t have pictured himself studying abroad. But, after discovering his love of travel as an undergrad at Iowa State, he’s serving as an officer for an international student organization.
Baber, a senior in agronomy from Weston, Missouri, maximizes his experiences at Iowa State through extracurriculars on campus as well as serving as the vice president of the International Agriculture Club at Iowa State.
“Once I came to Iowa State I realized how affordable studying abroad is and how we have such great opportunities to travel. Various scholarships were also offered, so it was kind of a no-brainer for me to go,” says Baber.
Rebecca Johnson, a freshman in agronomy, spent her summer abroad while managing her own livestock operation back at home.
Rebecca traveled to Finland through the organization "States' 4-H." This organization works with the 4-H organization in the United States as well as similar organizations worldwide to provide exchange programs that offer cultural immersion. Kids 12-18 have the opportunity to travel abroad as exchange students or host a child around their same age for a month up to a year.
