“Best Buddies is all about social inclusion & friendship for people with disabilities. They have so many talents and abilities, and we want to include them in society like anyone else. Knowing that you’re doing this so people with disabilities can all be connected and together in society feels so good. We’ve won the award for Most Outstanding College Chapter in Kentucky three years in a row.”

“You can get so much more out of studying abroad than you can in a classroom. It’s all about hands on learning. What better way to study history or architecture or geography than actually being there, involved in it? It completely changes yourself and how you see the world, too. I had never been out of the country before I did Semester at Sea, and I grew so much as a person. I was completely out of my comfort zone the entire time, adapting to new situations and environments. When you’re in your own bubble your whole life, then you get outside that bubble, you see yourself, your family, and your community differently. You can only get that by going abroad.”

Bryson Keltner is a junior from Edmonton, KY majoring in English. He serves as a Honors Topper & Study Abroad Ambassador at WKU. #PeopleofWKU
