Recent alumna Abby Pohl (BA Hospitality Business ’04), visited Costa Rica, Belgium, France, Italy, Switzerland, India, Australia and New Zealand during four Study Abroad trips. “Studying abroad not only taught me a great deal about foreign cultures, it also allowed me to see the benefits of my own culture more clearly.”

Her current position as installation and training specialist with Par Springer-Miller Hospitality Systems, based in Vermont, keeps her on the road about 90 percent of the time. In the past year, that’s meant on-site installation assignments at hotels in the United States and Japan, most recently the Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo. “I love what I do, and my Study Abroad experiences at the Broad School had a direct effect on my career choices and opportunities,” she says.
