Overall Experience
That I made the friends I will keep forever - University of Hartford View Entire Review
1) The world is big. 2) The world is small. 3) Be a traveler, not a tourist. 4) Take advantage of everything. 5) It's good to try new things and step outside of your comfort zone. 6) Go out of your way to meet new people. 7) Don't forget to slow it down sometimes (quality over quantity). 8) Don't be afraid to let loose an... - Drake University View Entire Review

September 30, 2015 Better Than Expected
It was a very rewarding experience. Even 9 months later, I still rave about it. The people and culture there are just so different. I was also not expecting the people to be so friendly. I'm from the North East so it was complete 180 from what I'm used to. - Framingham State University View Entire Review

I learned to look at my own country from a global perspective. It opened my world to living in a big city and the Spanish culture. I became very experienced with understanding how the culture works. I realizes how to relax and go with the flow, which is how the Spanish look at time. It was amazing, it was very worth it. I can't ... - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Completely worth every penny! It opened my eyes and I grew as an individual. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
Honestly, Barcelona was not on the top of my list of places I wanted to go. However, the moment I got there, I knew that magical city was for me!. The people are so relaxed and kind. They are very passionate about their city and way of life, and of course, their futbol! The city itself is beautiful and is surrounded by music, ar... - Antelope Valley College View Entire Review
