I also came [to UNE] for the Morocco campus. I thought that spending a semester there would be really cool, and I wanted to take advantage of that.

UNE helps you with everything. It’s really no extra cost to spend the semester on [the Morocco] campus…It’d be insane to pass up the opportunity to go.

I have so many wonderful memories from UNE and pharmacy school. If I had to pick just one it would be the amazing [advanced pharmacy practice experience (APPE)] I did in Granada, Spain

UNE offers such a unique environment. Everyone is so dedicated. The labs are hands-on even in your first few years.

The ability to do research as an undergrad was really important to me. From the start, professors are totally open to bringing on first-year students.

I was planning from my sophomore year to go on the Kenya travel course trip. I knew that it was something that I probably wouldn’t be able to do for the rest of my life.

My semester in Tangier, Morocco gave me a love of travel and a travel course — snorkeling among coral reefs in Belize — gave me a career path.

Marine Science
Paxton Arsenault

Studying abroad in Tangier was...probably the best choice I’ve made in my entire life. Being exposed and immersed into a completely new culture is something that woke me up to the vastness of the world.

Morocco became my second home. I loved seeing the different styles of family and tradition.

I think this experience will help me better communicate in two ways: first when speaking French and second when practicing occupational therapy and working with patients who may be non-verbal or hearing impaired.
