HWS No. 1 in Study Abroad


Just as the Pulteney St. Survey went to press, we learned that the Princeton Review has named Hobart and William Smith Colleges the top study abroad program in the country for the second year in a row. The HWS Center for Global Education offers more than 50 different program options in over 30 countries.

Dean of Global Education Thomas D’Agostino believes the Center for Global Education’s study abroad programs are distinctive in how they “address the diverse academic interests of our students” as well as “the manner in which students are able to maximize their experiences through an array of preparatory activities and opportunities to reflect, process, and share those experiences back on campus. This is all part of the Colleges’ well-earned reputation for excellence and top ranking in the Princeton Review.”

For the third year in a row, Hobart and William Smith are one of the nation’s top colleges and universities with the most recipients of U.S. Fulbright Student Awards. Since 2015, 19 students have been awarded cultural exchange and scholarship through the highly-competitive program that has shaped international affairs for more than 70 years.

A recipient of the prestigious U.S. Fulbright Student Award, Lauren St. Peter ’18 traveled to Taiwan this summer to begin her one-year tenure as an English Teaching Assistant.
