I learned so much - how to be more independent, how to be more open-minded, how to speak better Spanish, etc .... definitely worthwile! Natalie Gately - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review
I gained so much self confidence and can proudly say that I am much more outgoing than when I started my program. Seeing the world allowed me to open my eyes to many different things and I found a passion inside of me that I want to continue to see as much of the world as I can! Matea - Universidad de Salamanca / University of Salamanca View Entire Review
This experience taught me a lot about myself, who I am, what my purpose is, and what I want for my future. Most importantly, it taught me what makes me happy and how I can maintain that happiness. It was a worthwhile experience and if I could relive the whole thing over again, I would. Joseline Cano - Dominican University View Entire Review
Extremely worth it. It really encouraged me to meet new people and value the friendships that I made. Experiencing the different culture first hand really allowed me to gain a respect for everyone I met. Matea Manterola - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
My experience abroad was completely worthwhile. My entire perspective on life changed. Now, I want to work in an international setting and with people from different cultures and backgrounds than me. Lisa - University of Dayton View Entire Review
I learned that everyone is living a different life. You cannot assume you know a person just by looking at them. I also learned that it's okay to miss out, although I missed my friends at home and wished I was doing the things they were, study abroad gave me the ability to step back and say "hey, yeah that's cool, but I'm in Spa... A student - Saint John Fisher College View Entire Review
I learned so much about the world, people, and myself studying abroad. I would do it again in a heartbeat, and it was without a doubt the best thing I have ever done for myself. In the beginning, I was scared and anxious, this being the hardest and scariest thing I have ever done in my life, but after two weeks you will never wa... Meagan M - Assumption College View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile. I wish I could do it again. You learn to be more independent, you learn about other cultures and yourself. As well as American culture. julia.caulfield.96 - Western Washington University View Entire Review
It was completely worthwhile. It was a wonderful opportunity to understand (at least a little bit) the culture of Spain and to try and practice a new language with locals around the area. Nico A - Western Washington University View Entire Review
I learned more of the language, I met amazing people from Spain and all across the world. I was able to travel around Europe. I could not imagine a better year! caulfij - Western Washington University View Entire Review

It was the most amazing experience of my life. I learned so much and gained more than I ever could have without going abroad. It is beyond worth it. A student - Chapman University View Entire Review
I gained a sense of independence yet felt more connected to people than I ever have before. I learned about so many people, cultures, languages, and myself. A student - Southern Illinois University - Edwardsville View Entire Review
I met so many unique individuals. I decided to join a salsa class and travel throughout Spain! I gained experiences that shape the way I think and how I interact with others! Jordan - Claflin University View Entire Review
Amazing and absolutely worthwhile A student - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I learned how to speak Spanish, how to navigate foreign countries, how to be independent, how to make the most out of my education, and what I want to do with my life post-graduation. The experiences I had while studying abroad changed me forever. Kaitlyn Emerson - University of Wyoming View Entire Review
I learned so much about Spanish culture while in Salamanca. I learned about all the different foods they eat, and how the Spanish schedule is so different from other European countries and the US. My language skills improved dramatically, and I learned how to go out of my comfort zone when asking questions and speaking. I gained... Brendan Baumgartner - Indiana University - Purdue University Fort Wayne / IPFW View Entire Review
not to hangout with Americans , yes A student - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
I learned Spanish, and that I love to travel, and that I can stand on my own, and a ton about global companies like McDonalds and Starbucks, not to mention quite a bit about the European economy. A student - Trinity University View Entire Review
Because fluent in Spanish, now look at people differently and more open to people different from me A student - The Catholic University of America View Entire Review
I learned so much. I am confident to speak Spanish to anyone and I learned a lot about different cultures. I realized that I am able to be thrown into a foreign country knowing no one and I can come out with new best friends and some of the best times of my life. Haley F - University of Alabama - Tuscaloosa View Entire Review
I learned how to be completely open to new things. Being abroad doesn't always give you a "comfort" option, sometimes you just have to go with the flow. I appreciate every moment I spent abroad, and would do it again if I could. Amanda T - Augustana College View Entire Review
I gained tons of friends all over the world, in both the country I studied, the country I am from and other countries as well. I learned so much about different people and the different cultures and I also learned more about the European Union as a whole. It was definitely worthwhile and if able I would do it all over again! josephinerosauraliz - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
I gained a better control of the language and I learned a lot about being open and accepting to new and different cultures. I met new people and made life-long friends. I have a family in Salamanca. It was the most worthwhile experience I have ever had. A student - Dominican University View Entire Review
