Lester Ng ’93 clearly remembers the challenges of studying abroad. While in law school, he found himself struggling to acclimate to the language and culture during a semester in Hong Kong.
“While the program was good educationally, basically the program dumped you in a foreign land and left you to fend for yourself,” Lester said. “When you’re on the other side of the planet, it can be very challenging trying to just figure out how to take care of your basic needs. It can exact a heavy toll on the student and leave quite an empty hole emotionally.”
