CAPAStudyAbroad_London_Fall2017_From Thaddeus Kaszuba - Stopover in Italy_1.jpeg

When I was deciding on where to go to college, I knew that I needed to find a program with some sort of global perspective opportunity. Luckily, the University of Minnesota/Guthrie BFA Actor Training Program requires its students to study abroad as part of the curriculum and degree requirements. After hearing about that opportunity, I immediately knew that this program was the strongest choice for me as an artist.

A CAPA Student Interview: Sarah Pressler

CAPAStudyAbroad_Florence_Summer2017_From Sarah Pressler 1.jpg
Photo: Me & Mauro. Meeting up with an old Twitter friend before the program started. I never thought we'd ever meet in real life, but here we are enjoying Italy! What a treat.

Meet Sara Pressler, a Public Administration major and Honors Studies minor from Texas State University who is studying abroad in Florence this semester, summer 2017. Below, she talks about being a recipient of the Gilman Scholarship, why she chose to study abroad, and ways you can look for more scholarship opportunities.

CAPA WORLD: Tell us a bit about yourself.
SARAH PRESSLER: My study abroad program has brought me from Texas State University in San Marcos, TX, to Florence, Italy. I'm finishing up my bachelor's degree in Public Administration and my minor in Honors Studies. In the fall I'll begin working on my Masters in Legal Studies with ABA Paralegal Certification. Texas State University is currently the only college in the state of Texas to offer a combination degree program where you earn your Masters AND certification as a Paralegal through an ABA (American Bar Association) program. It's an amazing opportunity for those of us who want to work in the legal field but do not want to, or cannot, attend law school. I'm looking forward to diving into the program! Other than academics, at the moment, my hobbies and interests are focused on my four children ages 20, 17, 15, and 13. Between home life and academic life, the only other interest I have is napping!
