Student Testimonials: Yonsei University
Name: Patrick Yan
Highlight of my semester abroad:
Exploring a new culture every day and making new friends!
Interesting fact I learned about South Korea:
Although coffee is a relatively new import to Korea, the café culture is more diverse and superior to that of the U.S.

I interned briefly at Seoul Space, Korea’s most prominent startup incubator, and participated in the 2012 YG Entertainment Idealist program.
What I would say to students interested in participating in IBEX:
Research before going. Prep yourself for the new culture by reading blogs and watching Youtube videos about Yonsei and Korea. Befriend people from at least 10 different countries. Try some sannakji (live octopus). Explore historical landmarks and the non-stop nightlife.
