January 02, 2020 Eye Opening
I learned a lot about myself and it afforded me an outside perspective of America’s impact on the rest of the world. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I managed to spend wisely for the most part- I was always frugal but I managed to spend money while not spending too much. I also gained a sense of international culture by traveling to different countries and broadening my horizons. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I gained a new found independence. I valued the days where I hopped on a bus and got off at a stop in the city and wandered looking for new sites and new food. Hands down my favorite semester in college. I have been home for a month and with each passing day my heart longs harder for Dublin. - Washington State University View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with API (Academic Programs International): Dublin - University College Dublin
I've learned that there is a bigger world outside of America and so many cultures to experience... I've learned that not everyone lives like we do though they're happy all the same. Accepting others and embracing the differences between cultures has boosted my overall happiness because I feel as if I have an understanding of the... - University of Maine - Orono View Entire Review
I gained a lot of independence and learned so much more than I expected. If I could do it all again, I would go right back to Dublin with the same group of students. It was an experience I'll never forget! - Bentley University View Entire Review
I gained new friends and memories to last forever. I learned about different cultures and was able to travel to different places on weekends and during out break. - Washington State University - Pullman campus View Entire Review
The ability to travel to many different countries within Europe, see many places I would have not otherwise seen, and experience living in a different culture. It was completely worthwhile and I would do it again. - Springfield College View Entire Review
How to live by myself, and be independent - University of Hartford View Entire Review
It was definitely worth while. During spring break I went traveling alone and learned a lot about myself then as well as when I was in Ireland. Especially what I liked doing and didn't. - University of Hartford View Entire Review
I learned to be completely independent. If I made a mistake I alone had to fix it or figure out what to do. It made me realize that I can do anything, The experience was completely worthwhile. - University of Wisconsin - LaCrosse View Entire Review
This was the most amazing experience I have ever had to opportunity to take part in. I learned so much about myself, how to survive on my own, and how to communicate with others. The abroad experience teaches you more life lessons than you could learn at home. Forcing yourself to be on your own creates an environment that dem... - Bentley University View Entire Review
I gained proof that I am going into a profession that I will enjoy, and also found a city that I would love to live in as an adult. This study abroad experience has drastically changed my plans as I am now in a relationship with a girl from my host university, and have applied to return there for my post-graduate degree. - Kansas State University View Entire Review
