This research focused on why student athletes tend to not studying abroad. Student athletes at the University of Wisconsin-Stout were asked to take a survey concerning why had they not gone abroad throughout their time on campus, what were the factors that prohibited them from going abroad, and whether they even wanted to go abroad. This study also looked at how many of those students were male and female, and how many sports they were involved in. Suggestions can be offered on what the international office could do better to make student athletes more aware of the programs offered for students who have a hard time going abroad because of the demands of their sport. The research concluded that there are multiple issues that affect the priority of going abroad such as cost, time, available opportunities, lack of awareness, and major alignment with current offerings for study abroad programs.
