January 15, 2020 The Hike Of A Lifetime
It was completely worthwhile, I learned a lot about myself and how to really live fully independently, especially when it came to cooking - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I had an amazing time in New Zealand and overall I think it was the best study abroad program possible. - Boston College View Entire Review
I learned a lot about the country obviously but in a way that made me want to learn about more. I also have learned a lot about myself: what I am capable of, the things I am able to accomplish, and that I am a whole lot more adventurous than I ever dreamed I could be. - Mills College View Entire Review
I matured a lot. I didn't use my parents as a crutch. I was an individual. - Trinity University View Entire Review

Being abroad teaches you that no matter who they are or where they are from, all people have a lot in common and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. It also teaches you independence and gives you confidence in new situations. New Zealand gave me a real love of adventure and forced me to do things I never thought I would. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Gotta go to class, but I loved everything about it, it affects me everyday and I can't get over the fact that im not still there! Want to go back, will go back. I loved it, I wish everyone could travel abroad, it makes the world a better place! - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
